Reference Reviews

"The entries are short, to the point and informative. It also shows effectively the breadth of scholarship on globalization."
Australian Journal of Political Science

"An excellent review of the key concepts linked to globilazation as well as brief resumes of the ideas of amny key thinkers in the field. A really valuable text for all those working on globalization."
Diane Perrons, London School of Economics and Political Science

"Jones′s Dictionary of Globalization provides an indispensable reference guide to the new language of international politics. Using a clear and concise format, Jones sets out and describes the multifaceted components, events, ideas, and thinkers on globalization. A different kind of text, Dictionary of Globalization helps the reader navigate the vast and contentious literature on globalization."
Stephen D. Morris, University of South Alabama

"Comprehensive and clearly written, the Dictionary of Globalization should appeal to both newcomers and established scholars in the interdisciplinary field of global studies."
Manfred B. Steger, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology

From the Back Cover

The Dictionary of Globalization provides a critical overview of the contemporary globalization debate, bringing together all the disparate elements of a vast and ever–growing literature. Framed by a lively introductory chapter which examines the emergence and propulsion of this concept into widespread usage, the dictionary comprises an A–Z of entries covering every major aspect of the globalization debate from 9/11 to Zapatistas, the World Bank to the World Social Forum. The entries, ranging from 100 to 500 words in length, are divided into three core categories: institutions and organizations processes and phenomena key thinkers Each entry is accompanied by a few carefully selected recommendations for further reading to help students deepen their understanding of the topic in question. The dictionary also concludes with a section of additional readings grouped around key themes such as economic, political and cultural globalization. Designed to facilitate the readers own critical engagement with the complex ideas behind different perspectives on globalization, the dictionary is an invaluable guide for students, researchers and policy–makers.
