Globalization and International Political Economy: The Politics of Alternative Futures (Globalization)

by

Globalization and International Political Economy: The Politics of Alternative Futures (Globalization) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The politics of globalization include nation-states pursuing power, multinational firms seeking profits for their shareholders, coalitions and networks attempting to promote particular visions of future possible worlds, resistance groups ranging from the non-violent to the murderous, and ordinary people struggling to feed their families and secure their futures in a rapidly changing world. Globalization and International Political Economy examines processes of globalizing capitalism and the complex politics which are emerging from it--processes and struggles which will determine the shape of our world in the 21st century.

Book News Annotation:

Driven by boundless competitive accumulation and generating unprecedented time-space compression, capitalist globalization is qualitatively distinct from other forms of extensive social interaction that may have preceded it, argue Rupert (political science, Syracuse U.) and Soloman (government and international affairs, U. of South Florida). They look at the infrastructure of global production and finance it has created, the globalization of labor and new patterns of migration, and new forms of transnational political activity it has engendered. Then they ask what kinds of social relations and entities are embedded in these processes, and where they came from.
