“With great clarity and historical reflection, Ritzer guides readers on a grand tour of globalization and its many facets. He maps debates and charts globalization's gains and losses in our tumultuous times. This book's huge strengths are pinpointing the big questions and etching alternative futures.”
James H. Mittelman American University

“Globalization is a comprehensive and engaging account of the critical issues in this challenging field, bringing together debates from a range of disciplines in a coherent and accessible way. Drawing on examples from around the globe, and written with George Ritzer's usual clarity and command, this will be a key text for students of globalization across the social sciences.”
Fran Tonkiss, London School of Economics

“This is a remarkably wide ranging and savvy introduction to globalization.”
Jan Nederveen Pieterse, University of California, Santa Barbara

From the Back Cover

The first full-scale textbook of its kind, Globalization: A Basic Text provides a balanced introduction to the major topics in globalization studies. Written in a highly accessible style, and drawing on sources both academic and popular, the book adopts a definition of globalization that emphasizes transplanetary flows and the structures that both expedite and impede those flows.

Driven by a range of theories from imperialism and Americanization (and anti-Americanism), to neo-liberalism and the neo-Marxian alternatives, as well the major types of cultural theory, the book examines the key events in the history of globalization, and the principle flows and structures produced in the course of that history. Among the major topics covered are the economy, culture, technology, media and the Internet, migration, the environment, global inequalities, and the future of globalization.

Making extensive use of maps and with a glossary of key terms, this book offers the reader not only a descriptive, but also a critical, analysis of globalization.
