The only problem with this text is that the full length articles are not reprinted here. Other than that, it is a fairly good introduction to anyone researching women studies in the age of globalization.The organization of the book is appropriate, as are the introduction to the each of the sections.

What can i say Except this book was Amazing! I decided to take a Women's Studies Class at The University of Houston,and my professor had assigned this book. By the end of the semester we had finished the entire thing. All the topics exposed in it are eyeopening, and intriguing. I highly recommend this one especially if you're into any controversial topics and want to read up on some of them. Its a great read especially because its divided into specific topics. Although it is geared towards a "classroom read" Its just a great discussion book.
