Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Global Future was very well written, clear, informative, and well organized. It stays current with contemporary events, and uses real world examples to good effect in illustrating theoretical concepts."— Dr. Jeneen M. Hobby, Cleveland State University

"I would describe _The Global Future_ to colleagues as a solid, somewhat traditional text that covers topics in a straight-forward, clear manner. It provides richer content and greater depth of analysis than many other brief editions on the market today." — Raymond J. McCandless, The University of Findlay
