Anthony Giddens, Mitchell Duneier, and new co-author Richard P. Appelbaum have undertaken a cover-to-cover revision that strengthens the text's unique emphasis on the connections between globalization and everyday life. With new chapters on globalization, focused pedagogy, and abundant global examples, the Fourth Edition encourages students to consider how their individual actions play out in broader systems and how globalization, in turn, affects their everyday lives.
