For students of globalization, undergraduate or postgraduate, this little book should be an absolute must."
Acclaim for the second edition:
"This book provides a masterly and comprehensive survey of the political and intellectual debates over globalization that have raged for the past two decades. It is indispensable reading for anyone interested in finding out what these debates have been about and why they matter."
Andrew Gamble, University of Cambridge
"Globalization/Anti-Globalization is the best available account of the complexities of globalization. The authors state fairly a variety of points of view, present a vast amount of up-to-date evidence, and make a clear argument of their own ... highly recommended for university courses and for the general reader."
Robert O. Keohane, Princeton University
"Held and McGrew's second edition of Globalization/Anti-Globalization is a thoroughgoing revision of an already outstanding book. Held and McGrew do more than survey the field: they discuss how we might respond to globalization and how we could construct an effective politics to lessen its major negative consequences whilst improving the lives of the vast bulk of the world's population. This is a stunningly impressive book – a must-have reference work on the central debates within the globalization literature."
