    This book undoubtedly has a lot of research put into it. However, the crux and conclusion is a very biased evaluation. I would never call it a "No-Nonsense" anything.The main problem I have with the book in terms of GLOBALIZATION is Ellwood only considers globalization in economic terms. All his examples and research area based on the "global economic system." Globalization is supported by the free market, but this is only part of the force.Then, the way he analyzes the free market and democracy is unfair. He gives examples of the WTO, IMF, et al reducing democracy and sovereignty for economic prosperity. Then he speaks of international investors taking advantage of locals. BUT, he never investigates any other option. Look where Communism led China--50 M starved to death.Lastly, his anti-American bias taints the quality of globalization argument as well. He equates globalization with Americanization. Many authors would disagree with that statement. He naturally disagrees with Americans, and uses it as a straw man method to pull down globalization too.Revealing quotes:"...US to flout both domestic and international law as it wages a unilateral 'war on terror.' The single-minded pursuit of this chimera has eroded civil liberties and human rights...""local cultures around the world are marginalized and devalued. Family and community bonds are disintegrating...""Companies make the profits but society has to foot the bill."--The book is deceivingly easy to understand: following him is no problem. But what he says doesn't answer all the questions of the free market or Globalization. You'll need a more extensive book, and unbiased, to do that.Recommended: The Globalization ReaderWhy Globalization Works, (ok)Thomas L. Friedman books

    What's going on in our times in trade and finance usually escapes our notice, but it has alarming consequences for everyday people. Jobs that used to support families are disappearing. Bank depositors are now at least somewhat responsible for bank defaults. Pensions are at risk. Our country is now increasingly dependent on international trade and banking in ways that we never were before. This quick and easy read gives you a pretty good framework for understanding globalization of trade and the flow of money. It may seem like a boring topic, but your job, your pension or 401K, your bank deposits, and your country's independence and security are at stake. And you can do something--vote intelligently.

    Ideal book if you take a Political Science class regarding globalization. Tends to be the text that most professors use. Nothing special about it just outlines the history of...guess what....globalization!
