Top 10 books on globalization

Moisés Naím is the editor-in-chief of Foreign Policy magazine and author or editor of eight books including Illicit: How Smugglers, Traffickers and Copycats Are Hijacking the Global Economy.

He named his top ten books on globalization for Foreign Policy. A few books on his list:
For good overviews of the diverse facets of globalization read David Held, Anthony McGrew, David Goldblatt, and Jonathan Perraton's Global Transformations: Politics, Economics and Culture as well as The Great Experiment by Brookings Institution President Strobe Talbott who, like Fernandez Armesto, argues that the global integration of humanity has been an inexorable historical trend and explains why improving global governance is an urgent priority. Peter Berger and Samuel Huntington's Many Globalizations: Cultural Diversity in the Contemporary World (New York: Oxford University Press, 2002) is also worth a read.
Read about all ten books on the list.
