"The stimulating essays in this remarkably comprehensivecollection cover important global trends, present intriguingtheoretical perspectives, and take sides in current debates onglobalization. Many illustrate what Ritzer calls the"globophobic" thrust in recent work on the subject.This volume is required reading for serious students ofglobalization." Frank J. Lechner, Emory University <!--end--> "This is a thoroughly collated, unique combination ofencyclopaedic surveys of the major controversies that split/unitethe on-going debate on the origins, dynamics and the prospects ofglobalization, with illuminating case studies exploring the diverseimpacts of globalizing pressures on contemporary life in all partsof the planet.
