Overview

Winner of the 2003 Michael Harrington Award The new edition of Globalism picks up where the first edition left off_sandwiched between the G-8 Summit in Genoa, Italy, and the terrorist attacks of 9/11. As global challengers moved from peaceful protest to more violent confrontation, the market ideology of the dominant Western perspective transformed into what Steger terms an 'imperial globalism' led by the United States. With the birth of this new global imperialism came a more militaristic and openly coercive version of the economic globalism of the 1990s, as exemplified by the ongoing global War on Terror. This important book explores this transformation and its impacts around the world. As before, Manfred B. Steger combines an acute critique of globalization from all sides with a commitment to contributing to a critical theory of globalization that will both contest and revise the current globalism 'script.'
