Global studies has become one of the most vigorous subjects in cultural studies and the social sciences. Politics, international capital, revolutions in technology and communication, social and environmental struggles all compel us to study the world as a world. This anthology brings together dozens of outstanding scholars including David Harvey, Herbert Schiller, Sherry Turkle, Zillah Eisenstein, David Morley, Bryan S. Turner and Jeremy Rifkin. For readers in the social sciences and humanities, Globalization: The Reader addresses the big issues: communications and global media, political economy, cultural homogeneity, new technologies, tourism, beliefs and identity.
