Rethinking Globalization is the best single-volume source for teaching strategies that will help students make sense of an increasingly complicated and scary world. Rethinking Globalization alerts readers to the challenges we face--from child labor to sweatshops, from global warming to destruction of the rainforests--and also spotlights the enormous courage and creativity of people working to set things right. This essential resource includes role plays, interviews, poetry, stories, background readings, hands-on teaching tools, and much more!
"Rethinking Globalization is a breathtakingly rich collection of essays, photos, cartoons, poems, providing an extraorginary one-volume education on wealth, poverty, corporate power, and popular resistance in the contemporary world. The book is both a delight to read and a treasury of ideas and information. I can think of no other book that teaches so much, so engagingly. I will keep it very handy." --Howard Zinn
