About this title


Essentials of Globalization is a highly useful compact edition of the author's full-scale textbook, Globalization: A Basic Text. The Essentials is written in a style accessible to undergraduates, and draws on both academic and popular sources in its explanations.

  • A highly useful compact version of Globalization: A Basic Text, which contains the all major areas in an accessible and affordable format for undergraduate students
  • Develops a unique perspective on globalization early in the book and uses it throughout to orient and organize discussion of a wide range of topics and parts of the world
  • Integrated use of a wide array of sources, including empirical research, theories, newspaper and magazine articles, monographs, and popular books
  • Designed to work as a basic text in globalization courses, or as a supplementary text in courses that include globalization as one of several topics

From the Back Cover:

This compact alternative to Ritzer's Globalization: A Basic Text (Wiley-Blackwell, 2010) draws on material from the larger volume and presents a pared down, yet comprehensive, introduction to the major topics in globalization studies. Making use of both academic and popular sources, the book examines the key events in the history of globalization, and the principle flows and structures it has produced. It pinpoints the big questions and maps out alternative futures, whilst covering a range of theories from imperialism and Americanization, to neo-liberalism and the neo-Marxian alternatives.

This wide-ranging and engaging introduction provides an indispensable textbook for undergraduate courses and can be used independently or alongside a reader, such as Ritzer & Atalay, Readings in Globalization.
