By A Customer on February 22, 2001
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent collection of articles that begin to open up contemporary social problems in relation to their global dimensions and connections. Besides doing so quite effectively, this collection is, in the process, quite approachable for the general reader: it gathers sources that are deep enough for the specialist in social research, but also understandable for the average reader who may not have an in-depth background in the social sciences.
We hear much today about our "global society." This book helps to get beyond the cliche, to explore what this means in practical, grounded terms. In the process, it helps (in the best tradition of sociology) to develop a "sociological imagination".... to help us take the surface views of the world today available to us through mainstream sources, and to put them to the test of careful, critical social analysis.

I've really enjoyed and learned a lot from the articles in this book. I bought it for a class, and it is pretty easy reading and very informative about issues. The only this I would change would be an updated version of the book. It was printed in 2000, so while some of these issues are still problems, it's not all necessarily "current events". It makes me want to know more about current events, but so much has happened in the last 14 years, I feel like a new version would be awesome.
