It would be beneficial in some courses for a version of the book to be more concise, emphasizing the more essential points for each chapter.
Chapter 10 on global inequality could discuss imperialism as a distinct theory since cultural imperialism is mentioned in Chapter 3. It would be appropriate to also distinguish dependency theory from theories of imperialism. Clearer explanation of neoliberalism as policy and theory could also be provided, since it was mentioned in the "Global Feminization of Poverty" section.
Chapter 11 on race and ethnicity could discuss critical race theory and racial formation theory. A deeper discussion on institutional racism could be incorporated as related to education, housing, employment, and life changes.
