CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Is globalization being eclipsed by a resurgent geopolitics? Does the war on
terror denote the end of globalization or a new phase of militarized
globalization? Empire or globalization - are these the right terms to describe
the current global order?
The second edition of this highly successful book tests the claims of those
who dismiss the continuing significance of globalization through a
comprehensive assessment of contemporary global trends. In the aftermath of
9/11, and the war in Iraq, there has been much talk of the end of
globalization. Held and McGrew argue that these post-mortems for globalization
are entirely premature. They show this by focusing upon the primary structures
of world order namely: patterns of governance, organized violence, the economy,
culture and environmental degradation. Patterns of inequality, exclusion and
domination are also assessed.
Building upon this analysis, the authors present the case for continuing to
take globalization seriously as both a description and explanation of our
current global condition. They also ask the vital question: can globalization
be tamed? Held and McGrew explore whether a more just and stable world order is
either desirable or feasible and present an alternative ethical and political
agenda for the twenty-first century - a global covenant of cosmopolitan social
The second edition of this powerful and original book has been comprehensively
updated, with three new chapters added. The book will appeal to all those who
remain intrigued, confused or simply baffled by the controversy about
globalization and its consequences for the twenty-first century world order.
