Abstract:

Using vibrant, challenging, and diverse selections, Globalization: A Reader for Writers invites students to explore what globalization means not just to their everyday lives but to the collective future of the world. The writers, scholars, artists, journalists, and activists represented in this reader transcend globalization as a theme, challenging students to see globalization as a term that they need to define for themselves. This reader presents a more open-ended, less determined perspective than the "West and the Rest" agenda by offering articles that are personal and local yet also engaging to a broader global audience.
