Abstract

Globalization and the related issues of power and identity are central concerns in international studies, whether viewed from a political, economic, spatial or human perspective. The fully updated second edition of this major collection brings together a multi-disciplinary group of international scholars to interrogate globalization in theory and practice. Gender, identity, citizenship, migration, issues related to the state, and economic and technological change, are analyzed in depth. Several of the authors have revised their chapters from the earlier edition and others have provided completely new contributions in key areas such as the internet, social movements, environmental security and world cities. Two new introductory chapters written by the editors outline the theory and practice of international relations and political geography at the dawn of the twenty-first century. Several further chapters highlight different aspects of inequality which have become central to the globalization debate.
