Reviews

Globalization: Debunking the Myths is better than ever in its third edition. This book-a tour de force on an important subject-is rigorous yet also accessible. Hebron and Stack offer a profound assessment of globalization as an evolving concept. They address the dynamics of globalization thoroughly, offering a comprehensive account of globalization's impact on the political economy of the world along dimensions that include stability, cooperation and conflict, sovereignty, cultural identity, and the environment. This even-handed study concludes that benefits from globalization outweigh its costs. Both academic and general audiences will learn from this valuable book. -- Patrick James, University of Southern California
This clear and lively book provides an invaluable overview of the complexities of globalization. The authors synthesize the central debates-economic, political, social, cultural, and environmental-surrounding globalization, and do so in a manner that is simultaneously sophisticated and accessible. The third edition maintains the text's balanced, jargon-free analysis, while updating the content of ongoing contestations over globalization and its consequences. Hebron and Stack make a compelling case that both the proclaimed benefits of globalization and its alleged dangers have been exaggerated. -- Sheila Croucher, Miami University
With populist anti-globalization growing in developed and developing societies alike, there has never been a more pressing time for this new edition. Thoroughly informed and always lucid, it illuminates the many dimensions of a powerful and contentious complex of forces. This sober and balanced analysis is the perfect antidote to the exaggerated claims and counter-claims distorting the public conversation. -- James Piscatori, Australian National University
A first-rate, clearly written, extremely informative, and thought-provoking text. Especially valuable for students are the way the authors have laid out the issues, provided questions at the end of each chapter, and integrated their extensive research. -- David J. Kramer, Steven J. Green School of International and Public Affairs Senior Fellow, Florida International University; Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor, 2008-2009
