"A MUST for anyone involved in the social sciences. [LIFE III] explores a vast array of complex and ambiguous situations in an international context as it explores the impact of globalization on the lives of individuals and communities. The opportunities for discussion are extensive... I strongly recommend their use with anyone who is concerned about an ethical response to the problems in the world around us."
Dr. Gary N. McLean, Professor, Human Resource Development and Adult Education, University of Minnesota

"This is the best coverage of the socio-economic dimensions of globalization I've seen... ideal for classroom presentation... I would expect this series to be used extensively in Geography, Environmental Studies, Sociology, Anthropology, and Business courses."
Peter Walker, Associate Professor, Dept. of Geography, University of Oregon
