'[I] wonder how we have managed without such a text.' -- Rita Raley, UCSB, USA 'This collection affirms the important contribution that the humanities can and must make to the fractal field of globalisation studies. As we move between the two key terms--literature and globalisation--a map emerges of interlinked disciplinary concerns: one concerning the application of literary methods to produce much-needed interventions in the globalisation debates; and another focusing on the manifold ways in which the discourses of globalisation shape our readings of literature and our approaches to literary analysis. The volume will prove indispensable to scholars and students interested in conjunctions between the humanities and contemporary culture.' -- Stephen Levin, Clark University, USA 'A tremendous collection of essays that simultaneously provides a comprehensive cultural, geographical and social background to globalization and a rich account of the diverse ways in which literature has responded to globalization.' -- Ian Buchanan, Centre for Critical and Cultural Theory, Cardiff University, UK 'A terrific teaching text. In the quality and range of its selections, the questions they raise, and the case studies they offer, this anthology is what teachers working at the intersections of literary, cultural, and globalization studies have been waiting for. I look forward to testing it in the classroom.' -- Diana Brydon, University of Manitoba, Canada 'Literature and Globalisation: A Reader is a splendid collection. Liam Connell and Nicky Marsh have brought together key theoretical statements, critical analyses and textual readings drawn from a wide range of perspectives. This Reader will be warmly welcomed by scholars and students alike in the emergent field of literature and globalisation.' -- Pamela McCallum, University of Calgary, Canada
