Product Description

From the Back Cover

An Unruly World? examines how fast transnational capitalism is re-making the rules of the game throughout the world of the late twentieth century. Ranging in focus from analyses of "soft capitalism" and the rhetoric of speed in US political discourse, to the post-Cold War organizational drives of international trade unions, and the efforts of citizen groups to challenge trade and financial regimes, the chapters analyse the diverse conundrums thrown up by a seemingly unruly globalization. Whereas contemporary literature appears to argue that the process of globalization is leading to an increasingly uncontrollable world, this book suggests that this is not, however, a world bereft of rules and rulers. Indeed the rules governing the global economy are today more strictly enforced by intellectual organization and the rhetoric of neoliberalism than ever before.
