Review:

"Lechner has drawn on his extensive work on, and his deep knowledge of, globalization to write a brief, accessible and highly successful introduction to the field. The early chapters on food, sport and mass media should pique the student s interest and lure them into a deeper involvement with later chapters and the field in general."
George Ritzer, University of Maryland

"Frank Lechner′s text takes on key issues in the study of globalization with real clarity and critical power. An authoritative account of the major issues, theories and debates in the field, aptly illustrated by diverse contemporary examples, this text offers a clear analysis of a complex topic that will be an invaluable resource for students and scholars."
Fran Tonkiss, London School of Economics

From the Back Cover:

Written in a lively and accessible style, Globalization: The Making of World Society shows how globalization affects everyday experience, creates new institutions, and presents new challenges.

With many examples, Lechner describes how the process unfolds in a wide range of fields, from sports and media to law and religion. While sketching the outlines of a world society in the making, the book also demonstrates that globalization is inherently diverse and contentious. In this concise analysis of a complex subject, Lechner presents some of the best work in the social sciences in clear and readable fashion.

Globalization: The Making of World Society will serve as a stimulating, state–of–the–art text for any student of globalization, beginner or advanced.
