This book brings an empirical social science perspective to a public issue on which observers, economists, and business gurus have freely unleashed their abstract models and jumbo schemes. Written by internationally acclaimed authors, the chapters engage empirically tractable issues that are basic to any overall understanding of the social origins, structures, and consequences of the current wave of globalization. The book brings together in one volume diverse issues related to globalization that are generally dealt with in separate publications, such as migration, social inequality, flows of capital, Americanization and cultural identities, citizenship and collective action, and global governance. The diversity of topics and up to date discussion makes this book ideal as a text or supplementary reading for courses. As an argument for greater complexity, contingency and contradiction in contemporary debates on globalization, it is essential reading for any scholar or lay reader concerned about contemporary change.
