Reviews

"Undergraduate students or anyone else looking for a clear,well-informed introduction to globalisation and its literatureshould find the book readable and rewarding; readers more familiarwith its subject should find it stimulating." Political Studies Review "An excellent guide to the works of leading globalizationthinkers. More than a regular 'reader' on globalization; Jonesoffers his own analysis, distils the various criticisms andevaluates the thinker's contributions against the historicalcontext of his or her key works." Geografiska Annaler B "This imaginative book offers an excellent grand tour of themonumental works by 18 leading thinkers of contemporaryglobalization. Written in a highly systematic and yet criticalmanner, Jones' book clearly stands out as the key introductoryreference in the messy jungle of globalization studies." Henry Yeung, National University of Singapore "Andrew Jones has produced an absorbing and detailed analysis ofsome of the key writers on globalisation that provides a timely andcritical assessment of the current state of knowledge in thissomewhat crowded field." Diane Perrons, London School of Economics"This book offers a rather unique and original means ofunderstanding the different perspectives on globalization. It cutsthrough jargon and presents in a clear fashion the arguments of thekey thinkers." Stephen D. Morris, Tennessee State University
