"Globalization is not just about changing relations between the `inside' of the nation-state and the `outside' of the international system. It cuts across received categories, creating myriad multilayered intersections, overlapping playing fields, and actors skilled at working across these boundaries. People are at once rooted and rootless, local producers and global consumers, threatened in their identities yet continually remaking those identities. Deciphering the Global analyzes such complex worlds, looking not merely at `glocalization' or `transnationalization' but at the global macrocosm within the human-social, economic and political-microcosm."
-Philip G. Cerny, Professor of Global Political Economy, Rutgers University
"A rich collection of studies that surfaces the dynamic articulation of the global and the national. This book is an exciting expedition that establishes new theoretical and methodological beachheads in the study of globalization."
-Walden Bello, author of Deglobalization and 2003 recipient of the Right Livelihood Award
"Sassen's edited collection is a rich potpourri of highly readable, theoretically sophisticated and empirically fascinating accounts of partial processes and experiences of globalization."
-Roger Keil, Director, The City Institute at York University and co-editor of The Global Cities Reader
