"Lemert is inviting us to wonder along with him how globalization came to be as it is, and that is a key to the art of teaching. A special and compelling work.”
―Kai Erikson, Professor Emeritus, Yale University
“With his usual combination of style and wit, Charles Lemert delights students and teachers of social theory once again. Distilling and assessing the most important aspects of the globalization debates while also pushing forth new conceptual ground in an unexpected engagement with actor-network theory and world-systems analysis, Globalization is a must for teachers from all disciplines who are looking for a rigorous intellectual statement on what may be the defining condition of our times.”
―Sam Han, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore
“A book of highest importance. Putting sociology and history into a reflective analysis, Charles Lemert helps us to see globalization anew. The book is full of quiet wisdom from a global expert, enlivened by personal examples. Just when it seemed that everything that could be said about globalization had been said, Lemert intervenes to make us think again!”
―Professor Anthony Elliott, Director – Hawke Research Institute, University of South Australia
