Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This beautifully written book, drawing on a rich experience ofscholarship and engagement, offers us a new language with which tocomprehend the uncharted terrain of the contemporary world. Termslike "predatory globalization" or "normative democracy" amongothers brilliantly encapsulate some of the key issues of our time -the current ways of human suffering as well as the new hopes forhuman emancipation.' Mary Kaldor, Global Civil SocietyProgramme, London School of Economics

'Falk's Predatory Globalization is a most insightfulturn-of-the-century intellectual contribution. It defines clearlythe humane underpinnings of a vibrant world community that allowsand encourages much needed ideological mobility andcross-fertilization. Anticipating the 21st century trends, Falkproves once again he is at the vanguard of raising our collectiveconsciousness.' Clovis Maksoud, Director, Center for the GlobalSouth, American University

This is a very well written and refreshing text focusing on arealistic analysis of the most pressing issues, and the focus onnormative aspects of international relations theory away from aworld of pretence realism is very much welcome.' The EthicsConflict Research Digest

'A welcome contribution to the voluminous literature onglobalization.' The Journal of Politics
