A wide-ranging, significant contributionGöran TherbornProfessor of Sociology, Cambridge University
The book is an essential read for anybody who engages in exploring globalisation. It presents globalisation as a more inclusive and comprehensive framework. The book makes a valuable contribution to macro and micro analyses of globalisation, rigorously contesting the view that globalisation equates Westernisation. An extremely engaging read, spanning many contexts and aspects of globalisation.
Interesting read when looking at globalisation. Have passed to a Nursing lecturer who would like to adapt the book for use in creating awareness of globalisation of HIV awareness.
The book challenges the taken-for-granted western-centred perspectives of globalisation. It is highly critical and insightful into the complexities of globalisation and yet, it is also accessible.
This is an excellent text on Globalisation. It is theoretically sophisticated, critically engaging, and empirically comprehensive. The text is perhaps a little dense in parts for some undergraduate programmes, but perfect for courses on globalisation within sociology programmes in particular.
This provides a very useful and coherent overview of those components of the globalisation process, which is an inherent feature for the study of modern societies.
Very good text with an original approach that sets it apart from many texts in the field.
My course is intended for serving seconday school teachers who expect an introduction to globalization from multiple perspectives, so that they can engage in further self-study and feel confident enough to teach their students. The first few chapters of this book that focus on concepts and theories are a bit disjointed and too oriented for readers with good sociology background. The middle section of the book contains good chapters on some aspects of globalization, such as disaster relief, medicine, and war.
A rather concise but book on all the important subjects of Globalisation, written from an interesting perspective. The collaboration between the two authors really adds a dimension to the book.
I think this is excellent for my level 3 students particularly those who are studying the globalisation of the cruise industry
This gives a broad approach to issues which relate to the globalisation and engages in comparables. A great book to use with up to date information from other sources. thank you
