"This volume provides a valuable overview of contemporary discussions of globalization and what exactly the term means. Bryan Turner's introduction surveys the relevant debates with breadth and sobriety, calling into question some of the reigning shibboleths about this much-discussed but little-understood buzzword of our times. The volume will be useful to the specialist and the student alike." - Professor John Torpey, City University of New York Graduate Center, USA

"It is a timely, well puttogether compendium with an index incorporating key words and authors." - Linda Low, Department of Economic Development, Abu Dhabi Government and University of United Arab Emirates.
