Review:

"An excellent collection by truly serious authors on an subject hitherto ignored." - Charles Lemert, Professor of Sociology, Wesleyan University, USA

"This collection of essays places the concept of utopia firmly at the centre of a critical understanding of the idea and process of globalization. More, it shows how the idea of utopia is central to critical social theory. It not only deserves, but needs, to be widely read." - Ruth Levitas, Professor of Sociology, Bristol University, UK

"The imaginative essays compiled in this bold study attest to the vitality of critical utopianism in the global age. Wide-ranging yet admirably focused, this collection makes an important contribution to the new transdisciplinary field of global studies." - Manfred Steger, Professor of Global Studies and Director of Globalism Research Centre Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Australia

'This is undoubtedly a rigorous and thought-provoking collection of essays which should be essential reading for those wishing to engage critically with the concept of globalization.' - Political Studies Review
