Globalization: Prospects and Problems is a groundbreaking globalization text that goes beyond just focusing on one theme such as cultural, economic, or political globalization, and covers the range of globalization issues and topics. Speaking to students with one voice and from one analytical framework the author presents a clear image of "the big globalization picture" by providing, piece by piece, a myriad of globalization topics, debates, theories and empirical data. The author makes a strong connection with the student by encouraging them to relate their experiences as individuals to globalization processes.
