Globalization: A Critical Introduction
A systematically revised and updated new edition of a highly acclaimed text which was an immediate bestseller on courses around the world. The second edition takes a broader perspective giving increased coverage of other dimensions of globalization alongside its core focus on the rise of supraterritoriality which, the author argues, is globalization's most distinctive feature.
