After Globalization

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In lively and unflinching prose, Eric Cazdyn and Imre Szeman argue that contemporary thought about the world is disabled by a fatal flaw: the inability to think "an after" to globalization. After establishing seven theses (on education, morality, history, future, capitalism, nation, and common sense) that challenge the false promises that sustain this time-limit, After Globalization examines four popular thinkers (Thomas Friedman, Richard Florida, Paul Krugman and Naomi Klein) and how their work is dulled by these promises. Cazdyn and Szeman then speak to students from around the globe who are both unconvinced and uninterested in these promises and who understand the world very differently than the way it is popularly represented.

After Globalization argues that a true capacity to think an after to globalization is the very beginning of politics today.

Book News Annotation:

Following the economic crisis of 2008, globalization has come to an end as an ideological project that served to naturalize capitalism under its own name, making capitalism invisible behind phenomena that were treated as quasi-natural and largely beyond human control, according to Cazdyn (U. of Toronto, Canada) and Szeman (U. of Alberta, Canada). With this alleged return of capitalism and end of globalization comes the pressing need to confront post-globalizaiton, they further argue. This need has largely been ignored because within the ideology of globalization is a configuration of time that cannot imagine an "after" globalization. They challenge this ideology of time and related assumptions about education, morality, nation, future, history, capitalism, and common sense, illustrating their arguments by seeking to demonstrate how these assumptions operate in the writings of Richard Florida, Thomas Friedman, Paul Krugman, and Naomi Klein, as well as how they have been rejected by many students from around the globe (the "children of globalization").
