BOOK EXCERPT:

For many scholars and political activists, “globalization” encompasses a variety of economic, political, cultural, ideological, and environmental practices that have accelerated in the last few decades. Manfred Steger presents globalization in plain, readable English as a multifaceted system encompassing global, regional, and local aspects of social life. In addition to unpacking the term’s various dimensions, he investigates whether globalization is “good” or “bad”: a question hotly debated in classrooms, boardrooms, and on the streets.

BOOK EXCERPT:

As the new millennium approaches, we realise that we live in a truly 'global' world of dense and ever-increasing inter- and transnational economic, political and cultural interdependence. Yet globalization is a contradictory process. Processes of global integration and interdependence are unfolding together with processes of fragmentation and regionalization. Disintegration and fragmentation of political, economic and cultural structures that spur local and regional conflicts and dislocations are counter-balanced by moves towards unification, integration and co-operation. The empirical analysis of these processes and the emergent local, regional and global structures will become the main challenge to the social sciences in the years to come.This book offers a contribution to this task. Its main focus is the question as to how the state in Europe has been implicated in, and affected by, globalization. It places the interactions between globalization and the European state in a historical perspective, going back to the age of discovery and the formation of the modern state, yet it also addresses the complexities and uncertainties of the current age. Distinguished scholars from political science, international relations, sociology, philosophy and history -- all of whom have been specially commissioned to write a contribution for this book -- approach the unfolding dynamics of this 'age of transition' from a multidisciplinary perspective.

Globalization is generally covered in graduate courses which focus primarily on critical perspectives. This book fills the gap in the study of globalization as an introductory text suitable for undergraduates. In addition, this text includes entire chapters on subjects only partially covered in other texts such as regionalism, global education, interactive politics, think tanks, NGOs, and IFIs. This work integrates important topics to give students a broad understanding of the complex political, economic, and technological interaction among the key players in the globalization process: governments, MNCs, NGOs, think tanks, and international financial institutions. All chapters include review questions, exercises, and web links to help students apply concepts and theories. The final chapter presents five short case studies to encourage students to apply problem-solving skills in addressing the challenges of globalization in the 21st century. A Burnham Publishers book

BOOK EXCERPT:

Pre-world-war II in rural Yugoslavia. Tiny little village in Croatia and a fifteen year old Marta who believes there should be more to life than living the same routine her ancestors lived for generations. Thirsting for knowledge, for opportunities, she finds her alternative reality in books, although she has to hide away to read because it's considered a waste of time for a hard-working young woman and a perfect way to make your eyes go bad. And while she wants more from life, the journey, the love, the heartbreak, the living that life has in store for her is beyond her wildest imaginings.***Early 21st century in post war, independent Croatia. Matilda finds herself divorced after a short marriage in her early 30s, lost in her search for the ideal she refuses to believe doesn't exist. She draws her strength from the unconditional love and support of her college best friend Sanja and her neighbour Marta, who is over fifty years her senior, but whose green eyes draw her in with a promise of stories and life lived to the fullest. And might love not just be much closer than she imagines?
