    I feel obliged to write a review for this book in case another professor would assign it as a required reading This is probably the most shallow and superficial reading of globalization First it is not well organized Yes the theory and the micro cases are separated, however, the sections following the theory chapters are disorganized There are several overlaps and repetitions in discussions that it is hard to believe the book is written and edited by one single person Despite having a chapter on globalization and migration, the discussion of migration pops up again in relation to global inequality Contemporary scholars of globalization are not well cited in the book so it s risky to use this book as a core reading material Two stars for the McDonaldization thesis.
