The Globalization Reader makes sense of a term that has become an all-purpose catchword in contemporary debates. 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.

  • Fully revised and updated - includes 30 new essays and a new section on anti-globalization movements.
  • Wide-ranging - across economic, political, cultural, and experiential dimensions of social change.
  • Inclusive - covering a wide variety of perspectives on globalization and capturing some of the fault lines in current debates.
  • Stimulating - not only by including well-written, provocative, and contemporary works but also by structuring sections around arguments that serve as connecting themes.
