UPNE, 2007 - 286 strani
“Globalization” is perhaps the most controversial topic in policy-making, academic discussions, foreign affairs, and international relations today. There is no universal, monolithic process of globalization, and in this volume Howard J. Wiarda has assembled new scholarship on the topic by the leading experts in comparative and international politics. The essays compare the vastly different ways in which the United States, Europe, Russia, East Asia, South Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, and Sub-Saharan Africa have responded to globalization’s opportunities and pressures.

Contributors include Paul S. Adams, Peter Berger, Charles Conteh, Dale Herspring, Sherry Lowrance, Peter R. Moody, Paul M. Rego, Esther M. Skelley, A. H. Somejee, Evren Çelik Wiltse, and Lara Wylie.
