Synopsis

The final set of the Central Currents in Globalization series starts off with two volumes that focus on the politics of globalization from `above' and `below'. The first volume considers the idea of global political governance, including the impact of globalization on the nation-state and the role of multilateral regimes such as the United Nations. The second volume looks at globalizing political developments at ground level, including the notion of a `global civil society' and the rise of the `anti-globalization' movement. The final two volumes in the series review the various social theories and philosophies of globalization - including cosmopolitanism and human rights - along with the political critiques of globalization as homogenizing, marginalizing and/or exploitative force.



Volume One: Global Political Governance (with Nevzat Soguk, RMIT University, Australia)

Volume Two: Global Social Movements and Global Civil Society (with Paul van Seters, University of Tilburg, The Netherlands)

Volume Three: Social Theories of the Global (with James H. Mittelman, American University, Washington D.C.)
