In crisp and accessible language, The Effects of Globalization in Latin America, Africa, and Asia challenges conventional wisdom that often provides one-sided views of globalization. The book brings to light that which many scholars ignore: the symbiotic linkages within a global supranational regime consisting of MNCs, WTO, the IMF/World Bank, western media technology, and the lone superpower that are the principal actors in the global political economy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Kema Irogbe's study of the effects of globalization on Latin America, Africa, and Asia, is an informative and interesting read. * ID: International Dialogue, A Multidisciplinary Journal of World Affairs *
Prof. Irogbe shows the reader why free-market ideas-in the words of Nobel Prize Winner Joseph Stiglitz-are not only unfair, but also unwise. His book will be viewed as a provocation by the establishment, but will certainly be an eye opener to the thousands of 'aid' workers parachuted into the underdeveloped countries by the international and bilateral aid institutions, as well as by NGOs with the objective of 'saving' the world from its ills. The presentation of his arguments is powerful and founded on carefully researched materials collected over the last two decades. Irogbe shows clearly and in a verifiable manner that globalization contributes to the advancement of underdevelopment for the majority of people. His book is a must for all those who wish to understand the true power structure of our planet and sincerely want to make a difference towards creating a better and more just world for all. -- Kristian Laubjerg, former Resident UN Coordinator and Chief of UNICEF country offices
This book is a critical and uncompromisingly objective appraisal of the effects of globalization on nation-states-particularly, on the periphery countries. Not since Chinweizu's The West and the Rest of Us (1975) has a book so vividly exposed the plight of the developing world at the mercy of the developed countries. This book provides a rude awakening and offers solutions to the congenital problems that cloud or hinder the good relations of the peoples of the developing countries and the global elite that control the destiny of those countries. -- George A. Agbango, Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania
