From the Back Cover:

The Globalization Reader makes sense of a term that has become an all-purpose catchword in contemporary debate. This Reader compiles the most relevant literature into a highly readable and accessible format, providing students and researchers with an indispensable understanding of the globalization process.

The book includes selections from the best work of leading scholars, presenting distinctive explanations of the process of globalization. There are also descriptive entries on London, Manila, and Malawi, expressing the experience of globalization in everyday life. The book also focuses on global economic forces, global organization and cultural globalization including the construction of identities and the pervasive role of the mass media. The Reader concludes by examining the rise of world civil society as reflected in global environmental movements.
