Overview

Globalization And It's Discontents

In this collection of essays, Saskia Sassen deals with such current topics as the "global city," gender and migration, information technology, and the new dynamics of inequality. She demonstrates how vast the chasm between metropolitan business centers and low-income inner cities has become, bringing together cultural and literary studies, feminist theory, political economics, sociology, and political science. Incisive and original, she takes on common political, cultural, and economic misconceptions of globablization and offers a thoughtful new look at our increasingly global society.
