Globalization Theory: approaches and controversies

David Held|, Anthony G Mcgrew
Polity Press (February 2007)

Globalization Theory is the fourth volume in the highly acclaimed Global Transformations series. It follows in the footsteps of Global Transformations, the Global Transformations Reader and Governing Globalization. All these volumes have been widely adopted in courses on globalisation and global governance across the world.

This book focuses on elucidating leading theoretical approaches to understanding and explaining globalisation, both in its current form and potential future shapes. It is divided into two parts: the first examines competing explanatory theories of globalisation in its contemporary form and the second looks at competing prescriptions for the future of globalisation.

The book's contributors are world renowned experts in their field, including G John Ikenberry, Michael Doyle, Layna Mosley, Alex Callinicos, Anthony McGrew, Thomas Risse, Roland Robertson, John Thomlinson, Saskia Sassen, David Held, Thomas Pogge, Chris Brown and Andrew Kuper.

The book is designed as a textbook for courses on globalisation and global governance both at the graduate and undergraduate levels. It will be of interest to students in politics, international relations, social geography and sociology.
