""Territory, Authority, Rights" takes up pivotal sources of
friction in a process of globalization too often seen as simple and
inexorable. With clarity and insight Sassen shows how the meaning
of each is reconfigured in contemporary social change. Her work is
essential to making sense of practical problems as well as
theoretical issues."--Craig Calhoun, Social Science Research
"Saskia Sassen is a spectacularly original thinker. She offers
us not only new concepts, but often a new vocabulary. Her central
insight in "Territory, Authority, Rights," that understanding
globalization actually requires focusing on the national-or more
precisely, the phenomenon of 'denationalization' of many familiar
domestic institutions and processes-opens the door to reimagining
and retheorizing some of the most fundamental physical and
political elements of our world."--Anne-Marie Slaughter, Princeton
"In this brilliant and pioneering work, Saskia Sassen provides a
whole new way of thinking about globalization and political
development generally. This is a stunning achievement. One of the
beauties of the book is its careful historical analysis that puts
the globalizing present in the contexts of the past. However, not
only is the message important, but also the author's way of
illustrating the story in wonderful detail, so we are reading
specifics as well as sweeping abstract ideas."--Yale H. Ferguson,
Rutgers University, Newark
""Territory, Authority, Rights" is a bold new work by the
leading scholar of globalization. It will undoubtedly engage the
author's many fans, renewing the conversation about globalization
that Sassen has shaped in such substantial ways over the pasttwenty
years. But far more than merely bringing her readers up to date
with her thinking, the book also represents a major new
theorization of globalization. Profoundly multidisciplinary, it
will reach new audiences, and in the process redefine the issues,
possibilities, and theoretical stakes in globalization. Sassen
responds to globalization's critics from both right and left,
carving out a distinctive analytical path with critical foundations
of its own. The result is persuasive and compelling--a brilliant
achievement that will define the research agenda with respect to
globalization for years to come."--Alfred Aman, Indiana University
