MEDIA REVIEWS

"Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-division students, faculty, and general readers." (Choice, 1 December 2011) "I highly recommend the brilliant and well reasoned book The Contemporary Global Economy: A History since 1980 by Alfred E. Eckes, Jr., to anyone seeking a well written and comprehensive book on the march of globalization since 1980. The author presents the information, in a format that is readily understood by any reader, as to how the driving forces of economic change operate and how they are clearly visible today."
