Globalization and Change: The Transformation of Global Capitalism explores the origins, development, and transformation of globalization from a critical and historical perspective. Berch Berberoglu brings together eight essays authored by prominent sociological scientists from across the nation that examine the dynamics of globalization through an analysis of class relations and class struggles that define the contemporary global political economy. By undertaking a careful examination of the contradictions inherent in capitalist globalization, this book provides a thorough understanding of the issues behind the global capitalist economy and the struggle against globalization, while at the same time offering a viable solution to the growing exploitation of labor throughout the world. This study on global capitalism, informed by class analysis, is essential to anyone interested in the political implications of globalization and the unfolding class struggles.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This book, highlighting the capitalist nature of globalization and the exploitative nature of the reorganization of production and labor on a world scale, provides an excellent analysis of the globalization process and is a welcome contribution to the current literature. -- Martha Gimenez, University of Colorado, Boulder
Globalization and Change: The Transformation of Global Capitalism, edited by a social scientist of immense international reputation, contains lucid and critical essays that examine this worldwide expansionary process and its contradictions in great detail. This book is a must read, especially for those who are dissatisfied with the prevailing myths about globalization. -- Cyrus Bina, University of Minnesota, Morris Campus
The daily shockwaves of war, poverty, environmental devastation, protest, and revolt leave many of us at a loss to understand, let alone take action against, capitalist globalization. This collection of superb essays provides a succinct framework to expose the contradictions of this process, the human cost of global capitalist expansion, and the mobilization of millions of people to confront the global empire. -- Judy Aulette, University of North Carolina, Charlotte
This sterling collection of essays by premier political economists exposes the real nature of globalization and capitalism. Well analyzed, well edited, and much needed, this book will benefit laypersons and academics alike. -- Michael Parenti, author of The Face of Imperialism and God and His Demons
