Talk about globalization is all around us. It is far rarer that suitable definitions of what globalization is, and accounts of the many ways in which global connections and interdependencies affect and shape us, are provided. This is precisely what this Research Handbook offers: sociological conceptualizations of what globalization entails; interdisciplinary approaches to its many dimensions; critical analyses of today's complex interplays of the global, the local and the political; up-to-date-empirical accounts of the effects of globalization on life courses in contemporary societies and cutting-edge discussions of the historical, methodological and ethical questions our global interconnections present for the social sciences. This Handbook takes stock of the state of the art in sociological research on globalization and the contributors outline future trajectories for this, one of the most pressing and challenging sociological themes of our time.
Critical Acclaim
‘This Handbook dynamically energizes the discipline of sociology while enriching our understanding of the global. The volume opens up discussion of globalization as a study of structured relationships, interactions and interdependencies between people, from the everyday life of individuals to the macro level. Highly recommended to anyone interested in this global reality in which we all somehow live.’
– Bjørn Thomassen, Professor in Social Science, Roskilde University, Denmark
