About the Author

Luke Martell is Professor of Political Sociology at the University of Sussex


'Based on an interdisciplinary approach drawing on economic and political power as well as culture and social spheres, The Sociology of Globalization provides an excellent overview of key themes and major debates related to global restructuring. Comprehensive in its conceptual coverage and broad in its empirical focus, this book is a must read for advanced undergraduates, postgraduates and academics in Sociology, Economics and Politics alike.' Andreas Bieler, University of Nottingham 'Luke Martell provides students and scholars with a rich analysis of the features, causes and consequences of globalization. Martell draws attention to the power, inequality and conflict that are inherent in contemporary globalization. The author draws on a range of disciplinary perspectives, offering the reader a nuanced sociological perspective that is informed as well by politics and economics.' Layna Mosley, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill
