"There will be many other books that treat these and similar subjects... But it is difficult to imagine that there will be many better or more stimulating than [GLOBAPHOBIA]. The issues [GLOBAPHOBIA] raise[s] are the right ones. The solutions [it] suggest[s]... are equally correct." --Albert Fishlow, International Finance, 2:2, 1999 "Globaphobia deftly dissects the anti-trade arguments currently in vogue. An important book at an important time in the continuing debate over America's international posture. " --James A. Baker, III, Former Secretary of State "GLOBAPHOBIA knocks down the myths and misconceptions that too often cloud discourse concerning our increasing economic linkages with the rest of the world. The authors skillfully and impartially present data which establish that Americans overwhelmingly benefit from globalization through higher wages and better jobs... This highly readable handbook is a welcome addition for citizens interested in policies that enhance their economic well-being, and it should be required reading for all legislators." --Carla A. Hills, Former U.S. Trade Representative
