Overview

This is a systematically revised and updated new edition of a highly-acclaimed text which was an immediate bestseller on courses around the world.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
In the midst of globalization being touted as either the cause or solution to every problem, Scholte (international studies, U. of Warwick) offers academic definition, description, periodization, explanation, and judgement and on the basis of those, prescription. He covers the framework of analysis, change and continuity, and policy issues in discussions of such topics as what causes globalization, community, and humane global futures. Annotation c.
