    I liked the diverse set of issues covered in this book. However, the authors call for a more resilient globalisation that is managed through global institutions. While it is true that global problems need global solutions, I was left with the nagging feeling that simply making globalisation more resilient to unexpected surprises may just lead to the reinforcement of the neoliberal status quo.

    What a complete waste of time, even for my skimming through. The discussions and analyses of the issues are so generalised and common sense, do I really need to read this to learn about it?I'd gain much more significant insights if I read Gottdiener, Castells, and Harvey. Terrible book, and don't even get me started on the cover.
