    Review quote
    'The book is very well written, carrying the reader along with all the zest and enthusiasm that characterise a winner of one of the 2006 national tertiary teaching awards. Reading it often seems like being in a high-energy classroom.' - New Zealand Journal of Social Sciences 'A valid contribution to the globalisation literature as an introductory level or foundation text, combining key themes and empirical case studies with some key theoretical ideas. As part of the Routledge Contemporary Human Geography Series the book serves its role as a teaching aid, providing a concise introduction to the subject while is also amenable to delivery as, or as an accompaniment to, an undergraduate lecture courses.'- Tim Vorley, University of Leicester 'The structure of the book is logical and captures the key themes associated with globalisation, and is very accessible and extremely student friendly. It's an excellent book.' - Tim Vorley, University of Leicester 'Geographies of Globalisation is written in a very clear, accessible and concise manner and is a book that offers students something of a route-map through the uncertainty, confusion and misunderstandings that surround this now widely debated phenomenon.' - New Zealand Geographer 2006 'This book will travel well beyond the discipline of geography and will be equally useful for students of a range of other social science disciplines.' - Marcus Power, Department of Geography, University of Durham 'Geographies of Globalization is a must read. It offers reasons why geographers have been marginal to the wider globalization debates, an agenda for rectifying this issue, and a call to arms to geographers on how to make their discipline distinct and valuable to the debates.' - Canadian Geographer Review 'I am certain that Geographies of Globalization will make an excellent text for many geography courses that focus on globalization' - Annals of the AAG
