This third edition of The Globalization Reader makes sense of globalization by conveying its complexity, importance, and contentiousness from diverse vantage points. With its broad coverage of political, economic, cultural, and individual dimensions, this volume provides readers with a comprehensive introduction to globalization. Fully revised and updated with new material on economic globalization, the role of media and religion in cultural globalization, and the link between environmentalism and the globalization of social problems. It includes a wide variety of perspectives on globalization and captures some of the fault lines in current debates as well as stimulating discussion by including provocative contemporary works and by structuring sections around arguments that serve as connecting theme.
