Globalization and International Political Economy: The Politics of Alternative Futures

The politics of globalization include nation-states pursuing power, multinational firms seeking profits for their shareholders, coalitions and networks attempting to promote particular visions of future possible worlds, resistance groups ranging from the nonviolent to the murderous, and ordinary people struggling to feed their families and secure their futures in a rapidly changing world.

"Globalization and International Political Economy" examines processes of globalizing capitalism and the complex politics that are emerging from it—processes and struggles that will determine the shape of our world in the 21st century.
