"An important introduction to the debates about the geography of globalization. Critical but never shrill, the book works unerringly to expose and render intelligible the intellectual and practical pressure points that are the result of the multiple processes of globalization. As good a starting point as any you'll find."
Nigel Thrift, University of Warwick
"Writing for an upper level undergraduate readership, Andrew Herod has produced a challenging critical interpretation of geographies of globalization that is both historically informed and geographically sensitive."
Peter Dicken, University of Manchester
