'In this wide-ranging and lively study Noel and Therien argue that far from politics having moved beyond Left and Right in the era of globalisation, a new argument between Left and Right has emerged about the nature and future of globalisation itself. They provide a valuable guide both to the historical development of the Left and the Right, and to why these categories remain central to an understanding of contemporary world politics.' Andrew Gamble, University of Cambridge
'It might be considered daring, even hot-headed, to return to the topic of 'Left' and 'Right'. Noel and Therien have met the challenge successfully, and produced the most thorough study on this subject I have seen. Their book provides an excellent survey of the literature, and goes beyond the study of state and society across the world to analyse the global polity itself. Not only a must read but also an enjoyable one.' Bahgat Korany, American University in Cairo
'Left and Right in Global Politics focuses on a surprisingly under-researched dimension of modern life, and does so in an engaging and comprehensive way. The book provides a wonderful way to introduce students to contemporary world politics.' Craig N. Murphy, Wellesley College
