This text uses sociological perspectives to examine the various dimensions of globalization, and the social problems of inequality, war and violence, and environmental sustainability that are occurring on a global scale. Clear writing and vivid examples help students to better understand their role as global citizens.

The book is divided into three parts:

Part I focuses on the challenges of global inequalities: in life chances, wages and work, gender and education.

Part II focuses on conflict and violence at all levels: from crime to politics, terrorism to war.

Part III focuses on the issue of sustainability and the problems of urbanization, crowding and environmental destruction.
