Keri E. Iyall Smith is an assistant professor of sociology at Suffolk University in Boston. She has published articles on hybridity and world society, human rights, indigenous peoples, and teaching sociology, and she is the former vice-president of Sociologists Without Borders.

Review:

With analytic precision, experiential details, and insight, Keri E. Iyall Smith has organized readings that help readers understand the distinction between globalization and global capitalism. This distinction is an original and exceedingly useful contribution, not only for the classroom but also for scholarship. Congratulations to Professor Iyall Smith!”
Judith Blau, University of North Carolina

This is a very useful collection of major contributions to the study of globalization and the condition of the modern world.”
Roland Robertson, University of Pittsburgh and University of Aberdeen

This volume provides a relevant and insightful overview of dimensions of globalization and pertinent concerns.”
Jan Nederveen Pieterse, University of California, Santa Barbara

Superbly chosen and highly readable essays from experts, astutely selected for the student or interested reader, that cover multiple angles. Iyall Smith's insightful commentaries that mix her personal experiences, and refer to prospective readers' own, enhance this delightful collection. Highly recommended.”
Dennis Loo, author of Globalization and the Demolition of Society
