qA truly extraordinary book! The range of knowledge revealed by the author is quite astonishing and the material presented is done so in a clear and unambiguous writing style.qThe book includes astonishingly varied perspectives on issues that will impact the hoped-for positive consequences of globalization. I felt I was being informed by an expert who grasps the complexity of the issues involved in ways that make them clear and useful. If I was teaching a course that had anything to do with globalization and/or culture, I would assign this booka€”and if I knew of someone who was being assigned to another country, I would require him or her to read this book.q a€”Benjamin Schneider, Valtera Corporation and Professor Emeritus, University of Maryland What is a paradox?
