Product Description

Review

“By resisting the temptation to indulge in utopian fantasising, this experienced group of scholars, including Chris Brown, Thomas Pogge and Andrew Kuper, take their role of drawing up a new blueprint for global governance suitably seriously ... the careful selection of essays [constitutes an] excellent collection.”
Political Studies Review

“A timely and challenging volume from a first-rate roster of contributors.”
Anne-Marie Slaughter, Princeton University

“This volume, composed by some of the leading analysts of globalization, goes a long way towards clarifying the debate on a fundamental topic, often confused by ideology. It is both rigorous and challenging in its intellectual diversity. It will become required reading in universities around the world.”
Manuel Castells, University of Southern California

Understanding Globalization is the fourth volume in the highly acclaimed Global transformations series.

This book focuses on eludcidating leading theoretical approaches to understanding and explaining globalization, both in its current form and potential future shapes. It is divided into two parts: the first examines competing explanatory theories of globalization in its contemporary form and the second looks at competing prescriptions for the future of globalization. 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. The book is designed as a textbook for courses on globalization and global governance at both the graduate and undergraduate levels. It will be of interest to students in politics, international relations, social geography, and sociology.
