Well, here's somebody's explanation of what that means to MySQL; I expect it applies to other databases as well: SET TRANSACTION.

I found that by using "SET GLOBAL TRANSACTION ISOLATION LEVEL SERIALIZABLE" as my Google keywords, by the way. However most of the first page of results weren't quite about that exact string, just resources talking about transaction isolation level in general.
