Political Studies Review
An important volume for both scholars and practitioners alike.
International Affairs
[This book] presents an accessible and interesting group of essays that meets the Logos series' aim of communicating bold ideas that appeal to a wide audience. One of the strengths of this collection is that Bronner has compiled a selection of essays written by authors from diverse academic backgrounds; this helps to communicate the message that the political, economic, and cultural cannot be considered apart from one another, and to bring a variety of perspectives to bear on globalization. . . . The collection offers highly accessible reflections on contemporary political issues.
