Beschreibungen

To bring this volume together, the editor asked leading scholars in the field of globalization to outline a "research framework" that reflects their own approach to the subject. The resulting book presents a broad spectrum of analytical approaches to globalization. Theoretical reviews are complemented by substantive chapters and methodological analyses. Contributors include scholars in the fields of sociology, anthropology, history and political science. These writings have been organized into four sections: theoretical perspectives and cultural globalization, economic globalization, political globalization, and methodological approaches.
For this volume the editor asked leading scholars in the field of globalization to outline a "research framework" reflecting their own approach to the subject. The resulting book presents a broad spectrum of analytical approaches to globalization.
Paperback features updated introductions and post-script
For more than twenty years globalization has been a prominent topic in the social sciences and humanities because it deals with processes that impact all societies at the international, national, and local levels. Controversies and conflicting approaches have dominated this field of studies. To understand the variety and strength of different approaches, the editor asked many of their leading exponents to outline their own “research framework”.
The book's contributors are world renowned experts in their field, including G. John Ikenberry, Michael Doyle, Layna Mosley, Alex Callinicos, Anthony McGrew, Thomas Risse, Roland Robertson, John Tomlinson, Saskia Sassen, David Held, Thomas Pogge, Chris Brown and Andrew Kuper.
These writings have been organized into four sections: theoretical perspectives and cultural globalization, economic globalization, political globalization, and methodological approaches. The extensive coverage and the interdisciplinary flavor of the volume makes it suitable for a large interdisciplinary audience.
“Ino Rossi has assembled a stimulating collection of insightful essays by many of the world’s leading analysts of globalization. The essays more than live up to the book’s title, and the critical commentaries included in the volume, by the editor and other widely renowned contemporary social theorists, add a welcome dialogical dimension to the work. This is first-rate scholarship that merits careful reading by a wide audience.”
John Boli, Professor and Chair, Department of Sociology, Emory University, Atlanta, GA
“Many of the scholars in this volume were writing about political, social, and economic change from a global perspective long before the term ‘globalization’ became so widely used. It is very useful to have their recent thoughts as well as that of some younger experts about where the world is going, and how to study this, all combined in a single, fascinating book.”
Daniel Chirot, University of Washington, Seattle, WA
“Rossi has assembled an array of leading experts to dissect globalization’s realities and myths. Globalization emerges as a multi-dimensional process, structurally uneven, with deep measures of continuity and discontinuity from what went before. The global frontier has rarely been so penetratingly explored.”
Randall Collins, University of Pennsylvania
“In a compelling volume, pioneers who shaped globalization studies now take a fresh look at the field. This series of reflections deepens analysis and will help map research for many years to come.”
James H. Mittelman, Professor of International Relations, American University, Washington, DC, and Vice President of the International Studies Association
