Globalization is often perceived in rather simplistic terms: as a single universal process leading ultimately to global equality and global democracy. The contributors to "Globalisation and Identity" take a different view. Drawing on their expertise across a variety of disciplines they argue that globalisation is far more complex, a fact reflected in a range of key problems - centred on issues of equality and identity - now facing peoples and governments around the world. How can one successfully integrate immigrant populations within the structures of state and civil society? Is national identity compatible with cultural diversity? What are the contradictions posed in the contemporary world by the movement of populations? How does one integrate state structures and national societies themselves within an emergent international political order and a global civil society? Questions of globalisation and identity are of vital importance to aims of global harmony and global equality and this timely work provides a rich and integrated exploration of many of the key issues.
