This new edition in the Sociology for a New Century Series is a wonderful supplement to any course in the undergraduate or beginning graduate curriculum that focuses on globalization. It is the first book published for undergraduates which presents a coherent explanation for how "globalization" took root in the public discourse and how "globalization" represents a shift away from "development" as a way to think about non-western societies. The book is full of case studies that help to make the intricacies of globalization concrete, meaningful, and clear to students.
