This is the first of four volumes reporting on the UNU-WIDER project on new regionalism. It deals with the conceptions and meanings of two processes which probably will have a crucial influence on the shape of the "new world order"--globalization and regionalization. They relate to each other as challenge to response, globalization being the challenge of economic and cultural homogenization of the world and regionalization being a social and political reaction. The leading writers in the field contribute thought-provoking and fascinating articles to this volume.
