With this assignment, you will read and review Globalization and its Discontents. The goal of a book review is to summarize the author’s main argument and the evidence/points used to make that argument.
You must also evaluate how they have done so: does their methodology seem sound? What data/evidence do they use? What is their role in the world they are writing about? What might they have done better? What did do they do well?
Please note that it is not just your opinion of what they have done, but you must use examples/evidence from the text. You should evaluate how much/what you learn about the main topic (spoiler alert: development and globalization).
Below is a link to UNC’s Writing Center, in which they discuss book reviews and I highly recommend you take a look. I have also added to Blackboard an example of a book review I wrote & published on a different text so you have some sort of frame of reference.
This assignment should be at least 3 pages double-spaced Times New Roman 12-pt font with 1-inch margins with Chicago Author-Date citations (you’ll need parenthetical citations when you’re quoting directly, even though I know what text you’re pulling from).
