From International to World Society?: English School Theory and the Social Structure of Globalisationby Barry Buzan
Pub. Date: 05/28/2012
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
How is the concept of society understood on a global scale, since members are not individuals, but states, firms, NGOs and nations? Barry Buzan offers an original contribution to the "English School" theory. His study establishes a new theoretical framework emphasizing social structure that can be used to address globalization as complex political interplay among state and non-state actors.
