A Critical Introduction498
This highly-acclaimed, bestselling textbook, quickly established itself as one of the leading texts on the subject worldwide in its first edition. Now substantially revised and updated, Scholte provides students with a comprehensive introduction to globalization and questions why this phenomenon has occurred, to what extent it changes the world, and whether it is a force for good or ill. Accessibly written by a leading authority both as an academic researcher and a policy consultant, this second edition draws on the author's research in more than twenty countries over five continents. Split into three parts, the text first outlines a critical framework for understanding globalization, before exploring its impact on society, and the key debates surrounding its normative impact. Exploring questions such as what globalization is, how it has emerged and what effect it has had on society, this text is essential reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students seeking a thorough study of globalization.

Reviews of previous edition: '[S]uperb...[T]he theoretical perspective works! It informs! It clarifies! It stimulates!...This is a book that can serve as an introductory text in all fields. It is the kind of work that can help promote movement in the direction the academy, its classrooms, and its research centers should be going: toward the unity of knowledge in a world ever more tied together by nonterritorial processes, structures, and norms.' - James N. Rosenau, International Studies Review 'Do we need another book on globalization? Jan Aart Scholte is modest enough to pose this question, but his text is a plausible riposte. What we get in here is the most accessible textbook yet produced: this book can be recommended to students with confidence that here is a coherent view of globalization that can be tested against other arguments and information...Scholte's book is the best available version of the globalization paradigm.' - Martin Shaw, Millennium '[A]n impressive analysis of contemporary globalization that convincingly demonstrates why superterritoriality needs to be taken more seriously in the academy and beyond.' - Tony McGrew, New Political Economy Reviews of current edition: '... required reading for anyone interested in the various dimensions of contemporary globalization. Scholte has succeeded in writing a book that is, in fact, much more than an 'introduction'.' - Wil Hout, Development and Change
