"An authoritative and commodious collection, The Globalization Reader confronts an issue that now dominates social science discussion. Through an intelligent and judicious selection of key texts, Lechner and Boli explore the debates, explanations, experiences, and dimensions of the globalization process. The Reader covers the field systematically and expertly. Simply the best reader on globalization." Bryan S. Turner, University of Cambridge
"With this large, excellent selection of pieces written on globalization, we'll have something to recommend to our friends and students who want to know the best opinions on this most important of subjects. Many of the authors are critics from the left, others embrace globalization, and there is a good sprinkling of both official and unofficial views. It's a timely and well-done volume." Daniel Chirot, University of Washington
".the book deserves acknowledgement as a solid introduction, which maps out tthe major themes and issues that confront newcomers to the terrain." Progress in Development Studies--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
—John W. Meyer, Professor of Sociology, emeritus, Stanford University
"Lechner and Boli have done it again. The fourth edition of their reader is even more impressive than the previous three editions. It is very carefully organized, comprehensive, up-to-date and even-handed. I recommend it very strongly indeed as the most pedagogically fruitful text in the vast field of global studies."
—Roland Robertson, University of Pittsburgh and University of Aberdeen
"With many new features – the global financial crisis, the growth of Chinese world influence, global education, civil society, the globalization of justice, religious fundamentalism and much more - this fourth edition keeps The Globalization Reader at the forefront of the field. At once judicious and comprehensive in the selection of themes and issues, it provides essential tools for understanding the diverse dimensions of the global scene."
—Bryan S. Turner, Presidential Professor of Sociology, The Graduate Center, The City University of New York
