Higher level than I could use for Sophomores and even Juniors. I may use it for my "World Society" course I am teaching in Summer 2014.
Too much text made it challenging to implement as readings.

I will be using parts of this book in order to provide a more critical and rounded understanding of the role that location plays in globalisation. Chapter 5, with the more detailed examination of particular cases, has I believe a special didactic value. I was also planning to deliver a session on mobility of workforce. The perspective of Chapter 7, with its focus on the "other workers" in advanced globalised economies will be a crucial departure from the usual emphasis on the high-skill workers and a great way to give students a more comprehensive view of the flows of people in globalised conditions. Overall, I plan to include parts of the book as essential readings for discussion in my classes and to recommend the whole book to my students as a great way to explore the continuing role of location and in particular cities in modern economies.
