Book by McMichael Philip
"Sinopsis" puede pertenecer a otra edición de este libro.
This new Edition in the Sociology for a New Century Series is intended to be used in any course in the undergraduate or beginning graduate curriculum that focuses on globalization. It is the first book published for undergraduates which presents a coherent explanation for how `globalization' took root in the public discourse and how `globalization' represents a shift away from `development' as a way to think about non-western societies.
The Third Edition is full of case studies that help to make the intricacies of globalization concrete, meaningful, and clear to students. It also includes new treatments of fundamentalism, terrorism, the AIDS crisis and the commercialization of services via the World Trade Organization.Biografía del autor:
