Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is, quite simply, a fantastic book. It intelligently and comprehensively covers the key academic debates around globalization, and is one of the few texts that finds the right balance between academic rigor and undergraduate accessibility."
- Salvatore Babones, Senior Lecturer in Sociology and Social Policy, The University of Sydney, Australia
 
'The revised text is very impressive, fully brought up to date and should be invaluable to students. There is no other book that deals with the issue so well or in comparable detail. This is a well-balanced, well-organized text, written in a very student-friendly way.'
- Chris Rumford, Professor in Political Sociology and Global Politics, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK
