Global transformations

by David Held | 25 March 1999
PAPERBACK
Synopsis
This widely acclaimed book throws new light on the complex processes that are reshaping the contemporary world. All too often debates about globalization - and about whether it implies the end of the nation-state - have descended into polemics and confusion. Global Transformations overcomes these difficulties. Based on many years of original research, it maps the shape and scope of globalization and provides a comprehensive introduction to the subject, presenting its material in a clear and accessible way. The volume clarifies the notion of globalization, and places contemporary developments in a historical context. It provides detailed accounts of how the current phase of globalization is transforming modern societies in the areas of politics, economics, culture and communication, migration, environmental issues, law and military affairs. Drawing on a unique collection of data, the historical process of change in each of these spheres is spelt out. Throughout the book the authors bring out the implications of globalization for the sovereignty and autonomy of states and for the practice of modern politics and democracy.;This is the most systematic account available of the process of globalization. It will be illuminating not only to academics and students, but also to policy-makers, managers, and all those interested in the profound transformations affecting societies today.
