Overview

What is the hottest American export since 9/11? The contributors to this provocative volume contend that it is Western style globalism—the dominant free market ideology that determines everything from most favored nation status to the declaration of war. In this much-needed post September 11th analysis, an interdisciplinary author team shows how central concepts like globalization, liberty, free markets, and free trade are increasingly being subordinated to and lumped together with the war on terrorism led by the U.S. and its allies.

Editorial Reviews

Political Studies Review
The book serves well both as a meeting ground for a series of diverse political and methodological perspectives on dominant globalisms and as an appetiser for further work to come.
Jan Aart Scholte
Rethinking Globalism assembles stimulating diverse critical understandings of the ideological aspects of contemporary globalization, pointing us toward the sorts of transdisciplinary and intercultural engagements that global studies sorely need.
Saskia Sassen
A much-needed set of critical analyses of the dominant narratives about globalization by authors who recognize the existence of various global conditions. They deconstruct the content and orientation of these ideological accounts, and they recognize that work of critical analysis brings with it normative visions. Rethinking Globalism should be required reading for students of globalization.
