The Encyclopedia of Global Studies is the reference work for the emerging field of global studies. It covers both transnational topics and intellectual approaches to the study of global themes, including: the globalization of economies and technologies; the diaspora of cultures and dispersion of peoples; the transnational aspects of social and political change; the global impact of environmental, technological and health changes; and the organizations and issues related to global civil society.

The Encyclopedia of Global Studies lends definition to growing field of study while at the same time offering students and scholars a firm foundation on which to build serious research. It is unique in that it gives the reader a global, transnational perspective on a wide diversity of topics ranging from abortion to gender identity to outsourcing to waste management, as well as on broader concepts like civil society and social capital. It is an obvious choice for academics libraries that support transnational and global studies programs.
