Editorial Reviews

Review

• The first work to focus explicitly on how globalization affects security issues

• This set is written for a general audience, not just the specialized reader

• Fills a void in the growing need for up-to-date globalization studies



"This well-written and -organized collection would be of use to readers interested in the current state of globalization and its impact on the world at large. Recommended for both academic and public libraries."

Reference & Research Book News



"For 60 years, Praeger, now an imprint of ABC-CLIO, has published outstanding titles in international and military

affairs, social issues, and politics; this two-volume, in-depth, subject encyclopedia is no exception. . . . The topics are interesting and timely, the writing is engaging, and the contributors are highly qualified. In seamless fashion this set takes readers from cultural homogenization to blood diamonds to counter-globalization to child soldiers. Essential. All academic libraries supporting upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers/faculty."
