I studied this as part of DD100 social science course with the OU. I am a geographer at heart and globalization is arguably based on geographical issues which are interrelated with social science. On my initial read of the information about this book I thought it would be very interesting... unfortunately for me this was not the case. I felt this book was hard work, and made the concept of globalization harder than it needed to be.
This is an OU textbook, and baring that in mind it has been writen with the purpose of teaching potential degree students. When combined with the workbook they can leave you enlightened at the end. But from my experience of books relating to this course this is by far the worst out of the collection.
