From the Publisher"An important text for students and faculty, Munck has written a comprenenshive and cogent road map of globalization that places inequality at the forefront."
"This is not simply one more book on globalization but a radical, scholarly, and engaged attempt to say something new about exactly how the present form of capitalist globalization does not minimize social exclusion, as its proponents claim, but actually intensifies it all over the world."
"Amid the vast array of manifestos, scholarly essays, anthologies, and books that have been made available since the late 90s, Munck's book marks itself as a useful cognitive map of these "interesting times." A distinguished sociologist who has "always tried to to make sociology relevant to society and engaged on behalf of the disempowered" - has benefited from his own hindsight and from the lessons of recent history."
