Summary

Critical Globalization Studiesis the first volume to map out acriticalapproach to the rapidly growing field of gloablization studies. Centrally concerned with global justice, the contributors both scrutinze and recast the subject. As well, the volume serves as a bridge connecting scholars of globalization, the policy world, and the gloabla justice movement. The essays examine a wide range of topics too oftern left at the margin of globalization studies and in the process raise a host of crucial questions. Unique in its extensive and comprehensive approach,Critical Globalization Studiesdevelops new and important theoretical perspectives on globalization while engaging global social activism. It is an indispenseable guide for both academics and practitioners
