Read. Write. Oxford.
Using vibrant, challenging, and diverse selections, Globalization: A Reader for Writers invites students to explore what globalization means not just to their everyday lives but to the collective future of the world. The writers, scholars, artists, journalists, and activists represented in this reader transcend globalization as a theme, challenging students to see globalization as a term that they need to define for themselves. This reader presents a more open-ended, less determined perspective than the "West and the Rest" agenda by offering articles that are personal and local yet also engaging to a broader global audience.
Developed for the freshman composition course, Globalization: A Reader for Writers includes an interdisciplinary mix of public, academic, and scientific reading selections, providing students with the rhetorical knowledge and compositional skills required to participate effectively in an academic discourse about globalization.
Globalization: A Reader for Writers is part of a series of brief single-topic readers from Oxford University Press designed for today's college writing courses. Each reader in this series approaches a topic of contemporary conversation from multiple perspectives.
