Acclaim for the first edition:

"This is an excellent interpretation of current debates on the subject ... it will be widely adopted."

American Journal of Sociology

"Extremely successful as a short and concise summary of the globalization debate ... and is an ideal teaching resource."

Australian Journal of Political Science

"This is a brief and extremely useful book, helpful in particular for bringing some order into the chaos of the globalization debate; and helpful also in that it does not tell a one-sided story. For students of globalization, undergraduate or postgraduate, this little book should be an absolute must."

Environmental Politics

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."

Steve Smith, University of Exeter
