Overview

Globalization effectively captures the growth of linkages across national boundaries, the global expansion of a market economy, and the rise of a complex but integrated world society. The Globalization Reader makes sense of a term that has become an all-purpose catchword in contemporary debate. The editors have compiled the most relevant literature into a highly readable and accessible format. With its broad coverage of political, economic, cultural, and individual dimensions, this volume provides readers with a deeper understanding of the globalization process. This new edition has been thoroughly revised and updated, with thirty new essays and a new section on anti-globalization movements. The editors have replaced several abstract articles from the first edition with livelier, more accessible essays that reflect the current scholarship. With new case studies, and a more international focus, this second edition is an even better introduction to globalization studies.
