Editorial Reviews

Review

"Regardless of our places in world today, those thousands of miles away affect our lives. This is especially true after the events of 9/11 and manifests itself again today in the recent economy downturn. Coming of Age in a Globalized World: The Next Generation serves as a primer for advisors seeking to better understand what globalization is and what it means for us and our students. The authors break down the concept of globalization into clear and manageable concepts using familiar terminology that will aid us in explaining the ramifications of not preparing our students to think globally."

"This thoughtful and lively book offers documentation and analysis to help us understand the proliferation of changes and connections throughout the world. Adams and Carfagna masterfully make clear the imperative of overcoming ignorance of the cultures, histories and languages of other societies. Globalization, they assert, means education!"

3 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Staci F. Laico on April 12, 2006
Format: Paperback
The message of Adams and Carfagna's Coming of Age in a Globalized World: the Next Generation should be compared to, for it's time, to Mark Twain's [1869] The Innocents Abroad, in regard to travel as "fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness." And as stated in Coming of Age ... , it's the personal relationships that we make with each other in this world that allows for cross-cultural understanding.

As an American, I believe that my technological ability to "travel" makes me responsible for my view of the world. Educators, human advocates and the truly philanthropic corporations are, and beyond, the economic future of this world ...

This is a thought-provoking, fact-based book that confirms it's more important for us to share life experiences, heritage and the basic philosophy of human compassion, where we are inclusive and moving forward in our way of thinking of "culture."

It's no wonder to me that Fairleigh Dickinson University is a leader in global education ... this amazing book should be a pre-requisite for every integral college student!

Format: Paperback
Adams and Carfagna have demystified the subject of globalization and make it clear that we must understand and embrace other cultures if we are ever to truly become world citizens. They illustrate how the social, as well as economic, survival of all citizens depends on trancending the ignorance of the forces and trands that shape the modern world. A must read for any student of world affairs. Well done.
