The increasing globalization of economic, social, political, and cultural life is a key feature of the contemporary world. Written by a leading authority, Jan Aart Scholte's new book provides a concise but broad-ranging introduction to its causes, character, consequences,and implications. Accessible but avoiding oversimplification, the book provides a balanced assessment of how the benefits of globalization could be maximized and its ill effects minimized.

Reviews of previous edition:
'Superb...The theoretical perspective works! It informs! It clarifies! It stimulates!...This is a book that can serve as an introductory text in all fields. It is the kind of work that can help promote movement in the direction the academy, its classrooms, and its research centers should be going: toward the unity of knowledge in a world ever more tied together by nonterritorial processes, structures, and norms.' - James N. Rosenau, International Studies Review
'Do we need another book on globalization? Jan Aart Scholte is modest enough to pose this question, but his text is a plausible riposte. What we get in here is the most accessible textbook yet produced: this book can be recommended to students with confidence that here is a coherent view of globalization that can be tested against other arguments and information...Scholte's book is the best available version of the globalization paradigm.' - Martin Shaw, Millennium
'[A]n impressive analysis of contemporary globalization that convincingly demonstrates why superterritoriality needs to be taken more seriously in the academy and beyond.' - Tony McGrew, New Political Economy
'...offers a full menu for all those students, scholars and policy makers alike, who are interested in or puzzled about the nature of globalization and the major issues related to policy making in an increasingly globalized world.' - Wil Hout, Development and Change
