You will find here an annotated list of books representing cultures from around the world (and some on globalization in general).  The list started from suggestions by peers in Merry Merryfield's class through The Ohio State University, and I have added titles to it that I have heard about by keeping my eyes and ears open (most notably by listening to the BBS's podcast World Book Club).  Feel free to email me with titles that you think I should add (or subtract).  Special note #1: it is common in global ed. to give preferential treatment to texts written by a representative of the people they're about, rather than by "outsiders" (though clearly not all texts on these lists fit this mold).  Special note #2: I would have preferred not to segregate titles by region, but I did so to make finding titles easier.
