Beyond Borders is a collection of readings written by many different activists who want express themselves and inform people. It invites readers to learn about many different topics since each essay written by each person, focuses on a different topic. The stories are intended to inform readers about the globalized world that we live in, and to explain what they do not see happening across the globe. After reading this book, you will understand how bad some of the world issues are, how they started, and the things that are being done to fix the problems. It is designed to help bring up discussion about the different points of over the topics, and to expand the knowledge and perspectives.
The book contains so many points of view so the reader may not agree with every statement. I starts with putting things in perspective; it talks about colonialism, differences between places and people, patriarchy domination, poverty and inequality, the economy, globalization in general, and about the movements for social change. It is an intellectual read that will educate you on all of these topics not only by stating the facts about things, but making the reader create an opinion for themselves after hearing many sides. It is interesting to hear the stories of people across the globe and not just what goes on in our country or around us.
I thought it was an interesting, yet difficult book to read because of different aspects. Every part is written by a different person over different topics, making it hard to keep up with what you are reading. There were many things that I had no idea were happening in our world, therefore, I found it to be extremely informative. It definitely expanded by knowledge in many different directions and though it was hard to read, I really enjoyed it. It really made me view the world in a different way with all the evidence it had for each point. I would definitely recommend this book to people who wish to learn about many topics.

I needed this book for a Society and Social Issues class that I am taking this summer.

What was fun about this book is that it introduces the reader to many topics and many social issues. Each story in this collection is written by a different author so that the reader is exposed to many viewpoints. Each story in the collection is well-written and easy to connect to. The writers use real-world examples and provide sources for their ideas rather than making claims. I also noticed that within many of the stories, there are personal stories of people that are experiencing the issue that is being addressed.

A major thing that bothers me about this book is that it was published in 2006. Many of the issues in this book have not changed since 2006, but it does mean that all of the sources and stories used are at least ten years old. In that time, many viewpoints have changed. As a college student, I also find that it can be hard to relate to stories and situations that are as old as or older than I am. I feel that it is outdated for use as a college textbook when there are so many newer resources coming out.

The discussion questions in this book really force the reader to read, think, and call on outside information or personal experience in order to answer. I found that I had a lot of trouble answering many of the questions because I was asked to think in a way that my brain generally doesn't think, which started to become very frustrating. There is no cut and paste answering for these questions!

I purchased the book for a summer class that I have recently taken. As most of us buy our textbooks and never use them, or just dread having to open them up, this book was surprisingly the opposite of all of that. The articles that make up this book are interesting, insightful and cover a variety of topic from colonialism, globalization, NGO's, and the persecution of peoples are the world. Each article is written by a different author and allows the reader to hear different view points and instances of the topics that each section covers. While the book may not cover all troubles that consume people of more recent times, it does a great job of displaying the things that were in 2006, in which many are still relative today. Throughout reading the book, it just opened my eyes up and mind to things that are happening that are way more serious than what consumes my life. It also taught me more about myself and how I view the world. I found myself enraged at times while reading, and other times feeling guilty or sad. Some of the articles really play of the emotions of the authors and the readers, but each and every article get's their purpose across perfectly. The book provided so much evidence on a array of topics that could even be used by readers in the future. I believe that readers will enjoy the vast variety and points of views that enrich minds about things that affecting the world in a different way than in may affect them.

I recently purchased this book for a summer class I was required to take (Society and Social Issues) and contrary to my initial perception of this book, it was a rather informative and enjoyable read. The book is composed of a compilation of articles written and published by distinguished individuals whom are each very knowledgeable on the respective topics that they have written about. Throughout my reading I found that this book did an excellent job at evoking emotions I wasn't aware a book could make me feel. As a white male, I found myself feeling guilty for the oppression that my race has caused others throughout the course of time and even still to this day. I also found myself feeling extremely empathetic towards the variety of issues presented in the text. I also found that this book allowed me to open my eyes to things happening around the world, both in other countries and our own, and the difficult living situations others are forced to bear. To put it in perspective, I feel that now I am much more educated, further beyond what the media and common news outlets report to the public as fact and truth. At the end of each semester it is common for most students to sell their books for quick cash but after reading this book nearly cover to cover I think I'll be holding it for future reads and references.
