Globalization, and issues of power and identity arising from this
phenomenon, have become central to the concerns of international
studies, whether viewed from political economy, spatial or human
perspectives. For the first time, a multi-disciplinary group of
international scholars interrogates key common assumptions about
globalization in theory and practice. Using a range of expert
knowledge their arguments prove that the phenomenon can be
understood only through detailed assessment of the processes and
discourses associated with it. Gender, identity, citizenship and
migration are major themes. Contributors also investigate, from
different perspectives, the changing nature of the state and
implications for theorizing about it.
This collection provides a powerful new context for debates
about globalization through its identification of continuities and
new concerns, and demonstrates the cross-disciplinary imperatives
for investigating these areas. The authors are from the fields of
international relations and international political economy, and
political, human and cultural geography The book will be of
interest to the growing multi-disciplinary audience interested in
globalization, including those in cultural, media and
communications studies, gender studies, sociology and social
theory, and business.
