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.
