‘A truly excellent textbook: up-to-date, lucid, and accompanied by a wealth of tables, maps, charts, and photographs. This is the perfect core text for an introductory course in global studies.’ – Gregory Freeze, Brandeis University, USA
‘Global studies is, by definition, an enormous subject area that encompasses the fields of international politics, economics, social anthropology and environmental issues. McCormick rises to the challenge of presenting the complexities of globalisation in a clear and well-structured manner. This is an excellent introductory text, which will also be of value to advanced undergraduate students.’ – Roy Smith, Nottingham Trent University, UK
‘A clear, logical, and strategic approach to an extremely complex discipline. McCormick’s Global Studies serves as a great foundation for any introductory examination of global citizenship and allows plenty of room for the instructor to fully illuminate the nuances with timely and relevant news and events.’ – Mary Poffenro, San Jose State University, USA
‘An excellent introduction to the all-encompassing field of global studies, which offers a succinct and solid foundation for any student.’ – Simon Shen, Chinese University of Hong Kong, S.A.R., China
‘A well-organized introduction to global studies that includes both an impressive span of key topics and a critical perspective of what global connections means in different contexts.’ – Per Knutsson, University of Gothenburg, Sweden
