About this book

In this fully revised and updated new edition, leading political scientist Stephen Gill further develops his radical theory of the new world order to argue that as the globalization of power intensifies, so too do globalized forms of resistance. Including two new chapters, this widely adopted text offers alternatives to the current world order.

Reviews

Endorsements for the previous edition:

'This impressive volume is a three-part critical analysis of the interactive dynamics involved in the 'new world order' characterized by conditions of intensified globalization. Using a critical historical materialist (Gramscian, and neo-Marxist) framework, Gill combines bottom-up and top-down approaches to understanding political economy while underscoring the ethical issues involved in the social relations that make up the new world order. Summing Up: Highly recommended.' - Choice
