Critical Acclaim
‘Now in its fourth edition delivers even more stunning material on how globalization continues to shape our lives and livelihoods.’
– Mauro F. Guillén, author of Rude Awakening: Threats to the Global Liberal Order

‘Gopinath brilliantly connects the present with history through rich, recent examples of the impact of interactions across the world. Insights from the COVID-19 pandemic, in particular, enhance his pragmatic framework, rooted in systems thinking, that analyzes the forces of globalization and its facets. An entertaining and thought-provoking read, Gopinath offers much to both scholars and curious practitioners of international management.’
– Sri Zaheer, University of Minnesota, US

‘How timely! C. Gopinath’s Globalization is destined to be widely read and debated in this great age of globalization (or de-globalization – depending on your point of view).’
– Mike Peng, University of Texas at Dallas, US and author of Global Business and Global Strategy
