Review Text

'El-Ojeili and Hayden provide an engaging treatment of a subject worn to death by staid, conventional accounts. Using an accessible version of critical theory, they explore the interconnected sinews of globalization and consider its many tensions and contradictions. Their insights and reflections will be of use to students for many years.' - Randall Germain, Carleton University, Canada '...this volume is an insightful repository on how theoretical frameworks tend to foreclose certain perspectives on global interactions while favouring others.' - Emilian Kavalski, Political Studies Review
