About the Author:

Aquel Ahmad is a professor of Management at Walden University.

Review:

"Students seriously interested in institutions and processes of global policymaking will be greatly assisted in their understanding by Professor Ahmad's classic social science approach that uses heuristic polarities such as 'Modernization' and 'World System' theories to critically evaluate factors driving globalization. His conclusion that globalization processes are creating a 'global consciousness' to guide the economic, political, technological, social and cultural interdependence that now exists throughout our world, will provide students with more optimism about their own future. Although the author is quite realistic regarding the risks of globalization he, nevertheless, finds in its technological change processes the glimpses of 'a new world order emerging, being superimposed on local and parochial identities and prerogatives and pointing to our common destiny as the human race". - Reginald Henry, Political Scientist/Public Policy Analyst, Australia

"In New Age Globalization, Aqueil Ahmad provides a comprehensive and a very human overview of the key topics in the field of globalization. Where many analyses of globalization suffer from economic myopia, Ahmad develops a more sophisticated and nuanced perspective of the fast-evolving global community. Ahmad has added much-needed dimensions to the discussion of globalization, but has also succeeded in composing a very readable, intriguing book. Every student of globalization should read this book." - Timothy McGettigan, Professor of Sociology, Colorado State University, USA

"Historically-recorded attempts at organized state-sponsored globalization began with Columbus and Vasco de Gama, which eventually resulted in economic colonization of most of the Americas, Asia and Africa, led by multinational corporations like the East India Company, as duly brought out by Professor Ahmad in chap 5. But the wide range of contemporary globalization themes, topics and concerns covered by the author in this book are truly encyclopedic. They provide deep insights for local and global decision-making, socio-political analysis, and personal understanding of one's roles and responsibilities in a fast-changing, globalizing world order - a must-read." - Arif A Waqif, Former Professor and Dean School of Management, University of Hyderabad, India
