From the Publisher"Dennis Smith has provided a wake-up call to sociologistseverywhere ... This book is clearly a serious and major work ofcontemporary sociology. There are few current books on the theme ofglobalization that have Smith's historical range or indeed abilityto face the key issues head-on."
"Written with clarity and conviction, Smith's examination ofglobalism draws on sociological, historical, economic and politicalsources to trace globalization from the ancient world to thecurrent day [and] addresses one of the most urgent issues of ourtime."
Anthony Elliott, Sociological Review
"This highly accessible, punchy book is well suited toundergraduate classes and more general reading. Not everyone willagree with Smith's account, but they will nonetheless be attractedto the clarity and vigor with which he portrays thepower? humiliation component of globalization. His arguments willprovoke reflection and recognition, as well as controversy."
Charles Tilly, Columbia University
"In this provocative account of our global times Dennis Smithexplains why globalization is a growing source of conflict in theworld, producing and reproducing distinctive patterns ofhumiliation and domination. His analysis challenges much orthodoxthinking about the global condition whilst his worrying conclusionsdemonstrate why we can no longer ignore the 'hidden agenda' ofcontemporary globalization."
