Global society and international relations : sociological concepts and political perspectives by Martin Shaw( Book )
10 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 310 libraries worldwide
The debate about globalization is increasingly central to both sociology and international politics, but there have been few attempts to consider its implications for the essential frameworks of the disciplines. In this pathbreaking book, Martin Shaw places the concept of global society at the centre of analysis. He argues that this is now the only context in which it makes sense to talk about a society, or in which to discuss problems of 'international relations'. Shaw examines the recent sociological contribution to international relations thinking about the state and offers a broad critique of international relations theory. He claims that, while its issue agenda may have broadened, its conceptual base is still narrow. He argues for a comprehensive introduction of the concept of society into thinking about security, and that global society rather than international society is the relevant framework for understanding world politics

What is genocide? by Martin Shaw( Book )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 8 libraries worldwide
"In this intellectually and politically potent new book. Martin Shaw proposes a way through the confusion surrounding the idea of genocide. He considers the origins and development of the concept and its relationships to other forms of political violence. Offering a radical critique of the existing literature on genocide. Shaw argues that what distinguishes genocide from more legitimate warfare is that the 'enemies' targeted are groups and individuals of a civilian character. He vividly illustrates his argument from a wide range of historical episodes, and shows how the question 'What is genocide?' matters politically whenever populations are threatened by violence."--BOOK JACKET

Theory of the global state : globality as unfinished revolution by Martin Shaw( Book )
1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 3 libraries worldwide
"This study rewrites the terms of debate about globalization. Martin Shaw argues that the deepest meaning of globality is the growing sense of worldwide human commonality as a practical social force, arising from political struggle, not technological change. The book focusses upon two new concepts: the unfinished global-democratic revolution and the global-Western state. Shaw shows how an internationalized, post-imperial Western state conglomerate, symbiotically linked to global institutions, is increasingly consolidated amidst worldwide democratic upheavals against authoritarian, quasi-imperial non-Western state. This study explores the radical implications of these concepts for social, political and international theory, through a fundamental critique of modern 'national-international' social thought and dominant economistic versions of global theory. Theory of the Global State offers a historical, theoretical and political framework for understanding state and society in the emerging global age."--Jacket
