Overview

This book throws new light on the complex processes that are reshaping the contemporary world. All too often debates about globalization - and about whether it implies the end of the nation-state - have descended into polemics and confusion. Global Transformations overcomes these difficulties. Based on many years of original research, it maps the shape and scope of globalization and provides a comprehensive introduction to the subject, presenting its material in a clear and accessible way. This is the most systematic account available of the process of globalization. It will be illuminating not only to academics and students, but also to policy-makers, managers, and all those interested in the profound transformations affecting societies today.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Based on a decade of research, scholars of politics, government, social sciences, and economics attempt a thorough and non-polemic description of the current wave of globalization and the implications of it for the sovereignty and autonomy of national governments and for the practices of politics and democracy. Among their perspectives are the territorial state, organized violence, trade and markets, global finance, corporate power, migration, culture, and the coming environmental catastrophe. Annotation c.

From the Publisher

'An indispensable counterweight to optimists and pessimists alike.'

Will Hutton, The Observer

"I was pleasantly and genuinely surprised by the depth and intensity of analysis and argument contained in the book despite its wide-ranging subject matter ... Students of international affairs who long for books that go beyond the minutiae of globalisation and look at the big picture should consider this book compulsory reading."

Nick Grimwade, Times Higher Education Supplement

"The book provides a scholarly and deep exploration of the facts and the issues, and deserves wide reading."

Charles P. Kindelberger, Global Economy Quarterly

"This is a work with many strengths, but perhaps its most important virtue is the breadth and depth... with which the authors explore the topic. Unlike many studies that focus almost exclusively on the economic sources and consequences of globalization, this volume conceives of the topic broadly. . For better or worse, globalization will shape our future, and this work prepares us to understand and act in that brave new world."

Vincent A. Auger, The Journal of Developing Areas

"A must have for any student of globalisation is Global Transformations. This 515 page survey, packed with facts and theories, provides a comprehensive account of the widespread impact of globalisation"

Mark Perryman, New Statesman

"A thought-provoking textbook on the numerous political, economic, social and cultural themes behind the concept of globalization have long been sought after by those involved in first- and second-year courses that attempt to broach this theme. The good news is that one has finally arrived ... The disciplinary approach is very much one of political sociology but the multidisciplinary focus will be of great value and interest to geographers."

The Geographical Journal

"[A] sweeping literative survey and synthesis ... bustling with data, ideas, viewpoints and references to more detailed reading."

Alan M. Rugman, University of Oxford

'There can be little doubt that globalisation has now become the key discussion point in the social sciences. A seemingly endless supply of books and articles are being published that refer to "the global" or globalisation. Many of these are far too abstract and lacking in concrete empirical research. Global Transformations is a welcome exception.this book is the definitive work yet published on the subject."

Ray Kiely, Journal of Development

"Global Transformations is the most thorough and wide-reaching account of the global forces that are reshaping our lives. It is a wonderful combination of history, political science and economics that casts new light on the changes we will see in the new century."

Joseph Nye, Harvard University

"What a pleasure it is to read a book about globalization which is comprehensive yet carefully researched, where arguments are laid out precisely and then tested, and where the conclusions actually flow from the evidence. This is easily the best account of what globalization has and has not accomplished to date. It is essential reading for anyone who seeks to understand the way the world impinges on our lives."

Michael Mann, University of California at Los Angeles

"A most impressive and comprehensive analysis of the complex political, economic and cultural processes shaping and reshaping the world in which we live. The authors critically interrogate the much-abused term globalization and demonstrate, in a highly convincing and eminently readable manner, our need to adopt a far more creative political response to the forces currently transforming society at different scales."

Peter Dicken, University of Manchester
