The Routledge International Handbook of Globalization Studies offers students clear and informed chapters on the history of globalization and key theories that have considered the causes and consequences of the globalization process. There are substantive sections looking at demographic, economic, technological, social and cultural changes in globalization. The handbook examines many negative aspects – new wars, slavery, illegal migration, pollution and inequality – but concludes with an examination of responses to these problems through human rights organizations, international labour law and the growth of cosmopolitanism. There is a strong emphasis on interdisciplinary approaches with essays covering sociology, demography, economics, politics, anthropology and history.

The Handbook, written in a clear and direct style, will appeal to a wide audience. The extensive references and sources will direct students to areas of further study.

Review:

'Bryan Turner is one of today’s most creative social scientists and it is a treat for the reader that he now has turned his attention also to globalization. The topics that are discussed in this work are all extremely well chosen and cover everything from economics, internet and politics to the climate, Human Rights and the spread of infectious diseases. The Handbook of Globalization Studies is a must for everybody who wants to better understand the contemporary world as well as for every library that wants to serve and educate its visitors.' Richard Swedberg, Cornell University, USA

'This volume provides a valuable overview of contemporary discussions of globalization and what exactly the term means. Bryan Turner's introduction surveys the relevant debates with breadth and sobriety, calling into question some of the reigning shibboleths about this much-discussed but little-understood buzzword of our times. The volume will be useful to the specialist and the student alike.' - John Torpey, City University of New York Graduate Center, USA

'The Handbook of Globalization Studies makes a significant contribution to the widely discussed theme of globalization. Bryan Turner has skilfully brought together a variety of scholars from a broad range of social science disciplines, and the reader will be impressed by the rich and insightful arguments that emerge from this diverse range of perspectives.' - Mohamed Cherkaoui, CNRS and University of Paris Sorbonne

'It is a timely, well puttogether compendium with an index incorporating key words and authors.' - Linda Low,  Abu Dhabi Government and University of United Arab Emirates
