Globalization and After

Samir Dasgupta (Editor) Ray Kiely (Editor)
Synopsis Globalization has far-reaching consequences for the world community. Particularly so, as significant sections of this very community are being increasingly marginalized. While accepting that globalization is here to stay, the distinguished contributors to this volume voice skepticism about the claims of its supposed benefits. Instead, they believe that in its present form globalization is essentially unequal and biased, besides being environmentally destructive. Analyzing the issues from a variety of theoretical and disciplinary perspectives, the contributors address a number of important questions concerning the current form of globalization and its future course. These include: - Does globalization involve integration on a worldwide scale, or will there be a leveling-off, or even a reversal? - Encouraged by market forces, will privatization and deregulation of economies increase, or will there be a shift in direction, or even a reaction? - Will globalization lead to a new world order? – Is there an alternative to globalization? Overall, this multidisciplinary volume explores the tensions and dilemmas inherent in the process of globalization, from local, national and global perspectives.
