Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“With analytic precision, experiential details, and insight, Keri E. Iyall Smith has organized readings that help readers understand the distinction between globalization and global capitalism. This distinction is an original and exceedingly useful contribution, not only for the classroom but also for scholarship. Congratulations to Professor Iyall Smith!”
Judith Blau, University of North Carolina

“This is a very useful collection of major contributions to the study of globalization and the condition of the modern world.”
Roland Robertson, University of Pittsburgh and University of Aberdeen

“This volume provides a relevant and insightful overview of dimensions of globalization and pertinent concerns.”
Jan Nederveen Pieterse, University of California, Santa Barbara

“Superbly chosen and highly readable essays from experts, astutely selected for the student or interested reader, that cover multiple angles. Iyall Smith’s insightful commentaries that mix her personal experiences, and refer to prospective readers’ own, enhance this delightful collection. Highly recommended.”
Dennis Loo, author of Globalization and the Demolition of Society
