From Booklist:

*Starred Review* A brief scan of university international-studies departments and news headlines from around the world reveals an emerging paradigm shift in global studies. The problems and principal issues we confront in a globalized world can no longer be ignored if we hope for successful outcomes. This elegantly written, authoritative, and expansive set seeks to clarify the “concepts, approaches, theories, and methodologies” encompassed by the emerging field of global studies. Scholars from across the emerging discipline—from institutions such as Princeton and Oxford as well as the London School of Economics and the Sorbonne—have contributed to topics in such areas as global conflict and security, civil society, economic issues, ideologies, and identities. Each of the A–Z arranged essays, ranging from two to six pages, begins with cursory context materials, followed by a number of subcategories. The essay “Global Economic Issues,” for instance, includes the subcategories “Factors Contributing to Economic Globalization,” “Gains and Costs of Globalization,” “Contemporary Governance Structure,” “Macroeconomic Cooperation and Coordination,” and “The Shifting Balance of Global Economic Power.” Other entries include Abortion, Civil rights, Ethnocentrism, Hedge funds, International human rights, Soccer, Theater, United Nations, Urbanization, and Xenophobia. Each entry concludes with a handful of see also terms for cross-referencing and a brief list of principal works for further research. A 116-page index attests to the set’s overall diversity and comprehensiveness. As school curricula continue to move away from the ethnocentricities of Western civilization classes, works such as the Encyclopedia of Global Studies will assist teachers in expanding lesson plans beyond the usual worn-out topics and into new questions concerning the global marketplace of ideas. By offering keen, scholarly insight from a unique perspective, the volumes are an excellent addition to undergraduate and high-school libraries not already in possession of The Wiley-Blackwell Encyclopedia of Globalization (2012). --Brian Odom
