Globalization and related issues of power and identity are central concerns in international studies, whether viewed from political, economic, spatial or human perspectives. The substantially revised and fully updated third edition of this major collection brings together a multi-disciplinary group of international scholars to interrogate globalization in theory and practice.
New areas covered include: the economic rise of China, the increased importance of environmental issues on the global agenda and governance challenges associated with resulting conflicts of interest, especially between growing and rich economies, imperialism and democracy in the post 9/11 world, global civil society and global politics, advertising and cities, the governmentalization of world politics.
New contributions also include a chapter on the global politics of sexual dissidence, illustrating the extent to which globalization is a concept mobilized as much in relation to identity and cultural issues as at the grander structural levels of international politics and the economy.
Globalization: Theory and Practice, 3rd Edition retains the volume's roots in international relations and geography scholarship, but also reflects how they are linking with wide fields and areas of interest such as business and cultural and communications studies, signaling shifts in research frameworks related to material developments and globalization.
