Product Reviews

Review

"The essays in this volume offer spirited engagement with Held's The Global Covenant, which is summarised at the start of this one as the point of departure for the debate .

.

. The line-up of contributors is unquestionably impressive and diverse, and without exception the essays are lively and well written." Nicola Philips, Political Studies Review "Debating Globalization assembles leading scholars to rethink the logic and consequences of globalization. Held and his colleagues wonderfully illuminate the great forces that are transforming modern life." G. John Ikenberry, Princeton University "This brilliant book succeeds in bringing together two major issues normally isolated in the international agenda: security and development, security and the human rights agenda. Essential reading for students and policy-makers alike." Laurence Tubiana, Institut du développement durable, Paris "This book should be compulsory reading for governments, researchers, and social justice activists. The contributions address what is arguably the single greatest challenge of our age: the unstable co-existence of mass poverty in the midst of global prosperity. Avoiding simple blueprints, the book makes a compelling case for a new pattern of globalization and an end to "business as usual" global governance." Kevin Watkins, Director UNDP Human Development Report Office
