The Ends of Globalization: Bringing Society Back in

by

The Ends of Globalization: Bringing Society Back in Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book brings an empirical social science perspective to a public issue on which observers, economists, and business gurus have freely unleashed their abstract models and jumbo schemes. Written by internationally acclaimed authors, the chapters engage empirically tractable issues that are basic to any overall understanding of the social origins, structures, and consequences of the current wave of globalization.

Book News Annotation:

Pointing out that globalization is more than just some systematically observable social phenomenon, it is a "political and economic discourse, . . . an ideology that shapes and permeates much of what is nowadays uttered in the media, in policy texts, and in business publications," the editors present 22 articles critical of the neoliberal agenda of the corporations, the Clinton administration, and such global actors as the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and the World Trade Organization. The contributors attack the issue from the fields of sociology, philosophy, international law, history, anthropology, geography, and economics, and discuss such topics as the framing of the public discourse, the growth of economic inequality, the homogenization of culture, and other issues.
