'This is an excellent book which addresses a vital, but underexplored dimension of globalization, namely its links with and impacts upon human health. Kelley Lee's book is essential reading for those engaged in the debate on globalization.' - Professor Colin McInnes, Department of International Politics, Aberystwyth University, UK
'Kelley Lee's new book is an artful introduction to a vexingly complex topic. It usefully defines the globalization territory, pinpoints some of its key landmarks, offers a succinct conceptual model of how its contemporary incarnation might influence health and importantly offers optimism for the future in a debate redolent with despair. Policy makers, researchers and students intrigued by globalization and its discontents, but fearful of being overwhelmed by its vagaries, will find this book an engagingly helpful primer.' - Ronald Labonte, Director of the Saskatchewan Population Health and Evaluation Research Unit, Canada
'Kelley Lee provides a clear-headed and balanced discussion of the content and consequences of globalization. Drawing on a wide literature, she fairly assesses the public health costs and benefits. this book will contribute to our capacity to face unprecedented challenges toward the attainment of good and equitable population health.' - Professor Tony McMichael, Director of National Centre on Epidemology and Population, Australian National University
'I think that this book will have an immediate significance for courses on globalization in general and courses introducing public health issues as well.' - Craig N. Murphy, Professor of Political Science, Wellesley College, USA
