- Written by an author of international stature, very well-known in the worlds of sociology and politics and in left-of-centre politics.
- He develops here an original and clever perspective on the world, written from the viewpoint of someone who has thought a great deal about globalization and the new forms of global inequality created by it.
- This book is both an excellent introduction to ‘the world after globalization' and a plea for a rethinking of sociology and other social sciences in order to deal with the new questions and challenges raised by the globalized world of the 21st century.
- This is written in a very accessible way and could reach a much wider, non-academic readership.
