DESCRIPTION

Featuring readings from today's leading scholars, activists and policymakers, Beyond Borders helps today's college students navigate our increasingly globalized world and think critically about their place in it. This powerful collection encourages students to not only understand the global realities we are faced with today but also the history that gave rise to them.  In addition to introducing students to the major forces of globalization, the significant treaties and events, and the organizations involved, Beyond Borders challenges students to shift and broaden their perspective by examining the experiences of people across the globe.   In classic Rothenberg style, in-depth part introductions provide a conceptual framework for understanding the issues at hand and "Questions for Thinking, Writing, and Discussion" at the conclusion of each part challenge students to think deeper about the issues presented.
