The definitive volume on globalization from a comparative politics perspective

“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.

Globalization: Universal Trends, Regional Implications offers an extraordinary range of essays on the key trends shaping international relations and peoples’ daily lives. In looking at the universal and the varied regional impact of globalization, Howard Wiarda has pulled together a timely and significant collection that will be of interest to anyone who wants to better understand how the world is changing today.” Lee Hamilton, President, Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, and former Chairman, House Committee on International Relations

“The concept of globalization is too complex and diffuse for any individual to comprehend. This anthology is an important contribution, by providing a dozen different but insightful perspectives on a shared phenomenon.”—John J. Hamre, President and CEO, Center for Strategic and International Studies
