Overview

A veritable rock star of global studies, Manfred B. Steger has brought together here the "greatest hits" of the field since it emerged in the 1980s. In addition to carefully selecting and editing twenty of the most influential pieces on globalization out of a vast repertoire of writing, Steger provides an original and insightful introduction that spotlights the gist of these gems while showing how they build on one another thematically. Manageable in length and price, this "top 20" list is perfect for all readers wanting to know how globalization has evolved and the way in which it serves as a backdrop to the continuing global economic crisis.

    Just A Primer

    This book was recommended reading for an international law class. It is a standard primer to the growing trends in globalization. The author is not extremely opinionated yet he does a good job of getting certain points across.
