Recommends it for: those interested in starting to think about social problems globally
The short readings in this book are a good way to start discussions on how globalization effects the US. Lifting the veil of socialization so that the larger picture of world trends can be seen is difficult. The readings in this book bring focus to such common social aspects, e.g. economics, politics, and social relations.

This book provides numerous articles on topics of globalization - a great read to get an overview of current international issues.
Short, reader-friendly stories written by many diverse authors. It is a real eye-opener in the subject of globalization.

A really fascinating book. It is of course biased, but I believe it is impossible for such topics to not be biased.
