Description

Globalization: Debunking the Myths demystifies the rhetoric surrounding one of the most hotly debated topics among scholars, commentators, and policymakers. Presenting arguments for and against globalization, this text examines a wide range of views on the economic, political, cultural, and environmental dimensions of globalization and exposes their underlying frameworks, methodologies, and expectations. Throughout, Globalization compares rhetoric and reality and argues that there is no one way to understand this complex phenomenon. "Globalization moves the discussion of globalization beyond polemics to carve out an informed middle-ground position."-Sheila Croucher, Miami University "With an intimate knowledge of the scholarly literature, an acute awareness of the public significance of the issues, and an engaging style, Hebron and Stack tkae us through a shifting landscape..."-James Piscatori, The Australian National University "Globalization is required reading for anyone, either in academe or the general public, who wants to obtain greater understanding of the consequences of globalization."-Patrick James, University of Southern Californiashow more
