Globalization: Universal Trends, Regional Implications explores globalization—a concept that has become one of today’s most disputed topics in policymaking, academic discussions, foreign affairs and international relations.

Globalization was edited by Howard J. Wiarda, Dean Rusk professor of international relations, head of the department of international affairs at UGA and senior associate at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, D.C. He has compiled a series of essays by noted experts that compares the ways in which the U.S., Europe, Russia, East Asia, South Asia, the Middle East, Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa have responded to globalization and its demands and benefits.

Paul S. Adams, Peter Berger, Charles Conteh, Dale Herspring, Sherry Lowrance, Peter R. Moody, Paul M. Rego, Esther M. Skelley,  A.H. Somejee, Evren Celik Wiltse and Lara Wylie are among the contributors. Lee Hamilton, president of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, said Globalization “offers an extraordinary range of essays on the key trends shaping international relations and people’s daily lives.”
