Summary: "The new edition of The Globalization Reader is most impressive. It comprehensively covers the many dimensions of globalization, and incorporates the widest range of analytic and normative perspectives." - John W. Meyer , Professor of Sociology, emeritus, Stanford University "Lechner and Boli have done it again. The fourth edition of their reader is even more impressive than the previous three editions. It is very carefully organized, comprehensive, up-to-date and even-handed. I recommend it very strongly indeed as the most pedagogically fruitful text in the vast field of global studies." - Roland Robertson , University of Pittsburgh and University of Aberdeen "With many new features - the global financial crisis, the growth of Chinese world influence, global education, civil society, the globalization of justice, religious fundamentalism and much more - this fourth edition keeps The Globalization Reader at the forefront of the field. At once judicious and comprehensive in the selection of themes and issues, it provides essential tools for understanding the diverse dimensions of the global scene." - Bryan S. Turner , Presidential Professor of Sociology, The Graduate Center, The City University of New York. Nº de ref. de la librería ABE_book_new_0470655631
