Summary

Looking for a reader on globalization that is just as exciting as the topic itself? That comprehensively covers the issues and perspectives you and your students want to talk about? That frames the readings with clear, substantial, and original analysis by a pair of preeminent scholars? In their new edited volume, Mansbach and Rhodes offer the guidance students need to work through the varied and lively selections of scholarly and journalistic, theoretical and practical pieces, from both U.S. and international writers. This reader stands out because: - Its coverage of globalization is more extensive than other competing volumes, as the topic is viewed through historical, technological, conomic, political, security, cultural, demographic, and environmental lenses; - Five unique sections are dedicated to key cross-cutting questions: the challenge of nationalism; human rights; the debate about whether globalization is good; alternative globalizations; and globalization's future; - A broad mix of readings showcase different viewpoints, many of them non-Western; - Readings were chosen for content as well as accessibility; - Robust chapter and section introductions and end of chapter pedagogy are carefully crafted to provide needed context and encourage an active learning focus.
