Globalization is increasingly cited as a major factor shaping
social, political and economic change. This book critically
examines the implications of globalization for political life and
its relationship to economic and cultural change. Globalization and
the State places the contemporary debate in a historical context by
tracing the changing form of the state since AD 1000, showing the
continuities and changes that have marked the contemporary
situation. It argues that the impact of globalizations is changing
the relationship between states and other social actors yet the
influence of the image of the nation state leads us to overstate
the novelty and extent of recent changes. Focusing on the
interdependence of structures and agents, this book examines the
political strategies open to states nad non-state actors in a
shrinking world. It draws on examples from the politics of the drug
trade to the economy of satellite broadcasting in East Asia to
provide a framework for thinking about globalization that shows the
relationship between economic and cultural change and the practice
of politics at the end of the twentieth century.
