'Each of the chapters is rigorous in its accumulation of evidence and thoughtful in its application of analysis.' - Ben Rosamond, Democratization the globalisation of the world economy is one of the major concepts of our time and is likely to influence thinking and policy making well into the 21st century.

The Handbook of Globalisation Second Edition

Author: Jonathan Michie
Publisher: Edward Elgar Publishing
ISBN: 9780857931443
Release Date: 2011-01-01
Genre: Political Science

Acclaim for the first edition: Even those who dislike the word globalisation cannot avoid using it. This remarkable book clarifies the concept of globalisation, and the ways in which it should be used. It is an invaluable guide to the economic and social processes of the 21st century. Daniele Archibugi, Italian National Research Council, Italy Admirably edited. With a wealth of applied detail, the contributors visit all the interesting questions in international political economy. Ciaran Driver, University of London, UK This Handbook brings together a stunning range of writing on a subject which has tended to be wrapped in mystery and controversy. From the opening chapters that debate the newness of globalisation to the chapters that analyse the hegemony of neo-liberalism this book weaves together the most up to date and challenging academic work. . . Vishnu Padayachee, University of Natal, Durban, South Africa Globalisation is a ubiquitous buzzword. But what does it really mean and what are its implications for human well-being? The Handbook of Globalisation pulls together current work from a sterling cast of innovative thinkers on these questions. It is no surprise that one finds penetrating insights and innovative policy approaches on nearly every page. Robert Pollin, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, US Globalisation is an issue that has been high on the research agenda for several years, spawning a vast and at times unwieldy literature. A concept often ill-defined, it has generated a plethora of unresolved and fiercely contested questions, the nature of which depends on which side of the ideological divide one stands. The 2008 global credit crunch, which in 2009 created the first global recession since the 1930s, demonstrated that the capitalism unleashed model of globalisation which had been promoted from the 1980s onwards was both damaging and unsustainable. With contributions from the leading commentators in the field and an over-arching introduction from the editor, the concerns of this updated and revised handbook are two-fold. Firstly, to redefine the concept of globalisation and dispel the haze that surrounds it through a systematic and thorough examination of the debate. Secondly, to advance the frontiers of current critical thinking on the role and impact of globalisation, on the winners and losers in the process, and on the implications for society, the economy and governance. Offering a genuinely inter-disciplinary perspective, this Handbook represents the definitive guide to what is an all-pervasive issue. It should be on the bookshelves of all postgraduate and advanced undergraduate students in economics, business, international studies and related fields, as well as scholars and policymakers with an interest in the global economy and in the functioning of an increasingly globalised world.

Selling Diversity

Author: Yasmeen Abu-Laban
Publisher: University of Toronto Press

Release Date: 2002-09-01
Genre: Political Science

Since the 1990s, Canadian policy prescriptions for immigration, multiculturalism, and employment equity have equated globalization with global markets. This interpretation has transformed men and women of various ethnic backgrounds into trade-enhancing commodities who must justify their skills and talents in the language of business. This particular neo-liberal reading of globalization and public policy has resulted in a trend the authors call selling diversity. Using gender, race/ethnicity, and class lenses to frame their analysis, the authors review Canadian immigration, multiculturalism, and employment equity policies, including their different historical origins, to illustrate how a preference for selling diversity has emerged in the last decade. In the process they suggest that a commitment to enhance justice in a diverse society and world has been muted. Yet, neo-liberalism is not the only or inevitable option in this era of globalization, and Canadians are engaging in transnational struggles for rights and equality and thereby increasing the interconnectedness between peoples across the globe. Consequently, the emphasis on selling diversity might be challenged.

Is Globalization Causing the Decline of the Nation state

Author: Johannes Lenhard
Publisher: GRIN Verlag
ISBN: 9783640522132
Release Date: 2010-02
Genre:

Essay from the year 2009 in the subject Politics - Political Theory and the History of Ideas Journal, grade: 1.3, Royal Holloway, University of London, language: English, abstract: Globalization alone is not causing the decline of the nation-state - not a single 'trend' is able to reduce the power of the most important actor in the international system. Rather, different developments need to be taken into account when examining the situation of the nation-state. After having analyzed in the first part the way, major globalization-developments, like global capitalism, influence the nation-state, I will describe in the second and third part two other movements: internationalization and regionalization. Both are 'labelled' with a national/transnational ambiguity, on the one hand strengthening and on the other hand weakening the nation-state. Within the conclusion, I will then argue, that the nation-state is indeed 'under attack' - but not only by globalization - and that it has to cope with a changing nature and differing tasks.

Transnationale Geschichte

Publisher: Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht

Release Date: 2010-10-27
Genre: History

Die Internationalisierung der Geschichtswissenschaft schreitet voran. Zunehmend orientiert sie sich an transnationalen Fragestellungen und globalen Zusammenhängen. Dieser Band zieht eine Zwischenbilanz der aktuellen Entwicklung. Vom historischen Vergleich über die europäische Geschichte und die Postcolonial Studies bis zu globalgeschichtlichen Perspektiven stellen die Autoren die wichtigsten Konzepte einer transnationalen Historiographie vor. Daneben werden Felder der Geschichtswissenschaft behandelt, in denen transnationale Perspektiven eine lange Tradition haben – wie die jüdische Geschichte, die Intellectual History, die Geschichte multinationaler Unternehmen und die Konsumgeschichte – oder vergleichende und beziehungsgeschichtliche Fragen in den letzten Jahren erheblich an Bedeutung gewonnen haben – wie die historische Nationalismusforschung, die Arbeitergeschichte, die Geschichte der Zivilgesellschaft oder die Geschichte kollektiver Erinnerungen. Schließlich werden Ansätze wie die Kulturgeschichte oder die Mikrogeschichte, die sich gegen internationalisierende Zugriffe zu sperren scheinen, in ihrer transnationalen Dimension diskutiert.
