Ideal for both undergraduate and graduate courses, Globalization: The Greatest Hits, a Global Studies Reader covers all major dimensions of the subject: economics, politics, and culture. The premier scholar of globalization studies, Manfred B. Steger, has brought together the "greatest hits" of the field since it emerged in the 1980s. In addition to carefully selecting and editing twenty of the most influential pieces on globalization out of a vast repertoire of writing, Steger provides an original and insightful introduction that spotlights the gist of these gems while also showing how they build on one another thematically. 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.

Manfred B. Steger is Professor of Global Studies and Director of the Globalism Research Centre at Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University in Australia. He is also a Senior Research Fellow at the Globalization Research Center at the University of Hawai'i-Manoa. Dr. Steger is the author of more than fifteen books, including the best-selling Globalization: A Very Short Introduction, Second Edition (OUP, 2003).
What is wonderful about Manfred Steger's volume is how it reveals to students that globalization is a subject of lively debate around the world and that the questions being debated matter for all of us. Manfred Steger's own introductory essay is itself worth the price of admission! --Cynthia Enloe, author of Globalization and Militarism: Feminists Make the Link
