About the Book

Saskia Sassen is an internationally recognized expert on globalization whose writings have appeared in journals and magazines worldwide. Globalization and Its Discontents is a collection of Sassen's essays dealing with topics such as the global city, gender and migration (reconceived as the globalization of labor), information technology, and the new dynamics of inequality. Sassen brings together cultural and literary studies, feminist theory, political economics, sociology, and political science, showing how vast the chasm between metropolitan business centers and low-income inner cities has become. Incisive and original, she takes on common political, cultural, and economic misconceptions of globalization and offers a thoughtful, provocative new look at our increasingly global society.

About the Author: Saskia Sassen is a professor of sociology at the University of Chicago. Her previous books include The Global City, The Mobility of Labor and Capital, Losing Control, and Guests and Aliens.
