Brilliant deconstruction of globalisation theory, 10 Nov 2009
Rosenerg's book is a brilliant deconstruction of 'gloalisation theory'. With an eloquence that is not normally found in the international politics literature he dissects three of globalisation theory's top advocates, partly as a defence of classical social theorists such as Marx and Weber. Complex it may be, it will remain an outstanding critique of many characteristic approaches to International Relations and International Political economy. I especially like his references to works of Shakespeare - a breath of literary freah air in a field of academia that is too often overly-clinical in its writing style. Five stars for content, five stars for style.
