Product Description

Review

Reviews of previous edition:

'[S]uperb...[T]he theoretical perspective works! It informs! It clarifies! It stimulates!...This is a book that can serve as an introductory text in all fields. It is the kind of work that can help promote movement in the direction the academy, its classrooms, and its research centers should be going: toward the unity of knowledge in a world ever more tied together by nonterritorial processes, structures, and norms.' - James N. Rosenau, International Studies Review

'Do we need another book on globalization? Jan Aart Scholte is modest enough to pose this question, but his text is a plausible riposte. What we get in here is the most accessible textbook yet produced: this book can be recommended to students with confidence that here is a coherent view of globalization that can be tested against other arguments and information...Scholte's book is the best available version of the globalization paradigm.' - Martin Shaw, Millennium

'[A]n impressive analysis of contemporary globalization that convincingly demonstrates why superterritoriality needs to be taken more seriously in the academy and beyond.' - Tony McGrew, New Political Economy


Reviews of current edition:

'... required reading for anyone interested in the various dimensions of contemporary globalization.  Scholte has succeeded in writing a book that is, in fact, much more than an 'introduction'.'  - Wil Hout, Development and Change

About the Author

JAN AART SCHOLTE is Professor of Politics and International Studies, and Co-Director for the Study of Globalsation and Regionalisation, University of Warwick, UK.

Format: Paperback
This is the ideal guide to globalisation. The term 'globalisation' is often misued to decorate exagerated academic theses and increase sales - the term is sprayed around like perfume to freshen up the appearance of many books (just try googling it). At last, here is a book which avoids the clouds of obsification caused by other authors who either explain the benefits of the currently dominant neoliberal economic doctrine and call this globalisation, or critique the resemblence of imperial and colonial tendencies by powerful elites and are branded as the anti-globalisation movement (a contridiction if ever there was one).
This book describes the core characteristic of globalisation as superteritoriality, in which the emerging priority is no longer the nation-state, but is the realisation of a global-space. Here there is no single globalisation but multiple developments of which economic integration is only one. Globalisation may be unstoppable, but there are opportunities for us to shape the emergent trends of identity, knowledge, production and governance and so give greater emphasis to tackling inequality, promoting democracy and striving for greater security.
Scholte's book is the best available description of globalisation. We need to know more about the world and this may be a textbook but it is an easy read and makes the world more accessible.

Scholte's book seems to be an important contribution to the globalization debate. It is rather easily read, and I would therefore recommend it to anyone with an initial interest in the subject.

Interesting, although there are better ones around. A bit boring and in the first chapters keeps of repeating the same concepts over and over again
