Abstract:

"This new book offers an engaging and challenging introduction to the thorny paths of the globalization debate. Beck aims to clarify the ambiguities of the debate, to distinguish between the various types of globalization and to warn the reader of conceptual traps. Most importantly, however, he opens up the horizon for political responses to globalization." "Beck focuses on two main questions: what does globalization mean? and how can it be moulded politically?" "This book will be an important text for students and scholars in politics, sociology, geography and the social sciences generally. It will also appeal to a broader audience interested in key social and political issues in the world today."--BOOK JACKET.
