Ideal for undergraduate courses, The Global Studies Reader, Second Edition, is an engaging, accessible introduction that helps students better understand what constitutes the interdisciplinary field of Global Studies. The premier scholar of globalization studies, Manfred B. Steger, brings together twenty of the "greatest hits" of the field since it emerged in the 1980s, carefully selecting and editing these influential pieces out of a vast repertoire of writing. Manageable in length and price, this "Top 20" collection shows how globalization has evolved and how it serves as a backdrop to the current global economic crisis.

Review:


"The Global Studies Reader, Second Edition, is a highly convenient one-stop shop for many of the seminal articles in the field. The book's competitive advantages include its reasonable price, convenient size, and the fact that it's been compiled by such a world-renowned expert on the processes and ideologies of globalization."--Roberto E. Campo, The University of North Carolina at Greensboro


"I would certainly use The Global Studies Reader. The level of scholarship is second to none. This book provides the in-depth analysis that is essential to exposing undergraduates to contending issues and events in international studies."--Chris Dolan, Lebanon Valley College

Book Description Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. The Global Studies Reader, Second Edition, offers an accessible introduction to globalization that will provide students with a better understanding of what constitutes Global Studies-the transdisciplinary field dedicated to the study of globalization. Thus, the book has been carefully designed to provide a representative selection of transdisciplinary writings appropriate for undergraduate students in Global Studies. This book brings together in a singlevolume some of the best pieces on the subject written by recognized scholars. These twenty seminal contributions have been kept to an easily digestible length while at the same time covering the major dimensions of globalization: politics and societies; economies and technologies; cultures and histories; andspaces and environments. Although The Global Studies Reader purposely contains no additional sectional introductions that might interrupt the conceptual flow of the writings, it offers at the end of each of its four parts five discussion points designed to help clarify the authors' arguments and to stimulate further conversation. You will also find suggestions for additional readings and recommended websites to guide students' further research. Seller Inventory # AAS9780199338467
