Abstract

This exciting book provides an illuminating account of contemporary globalization that is grounded in actual transformations in the areas of production and the workplace. It reveals the social and political contests that give 'global' its meaning, by examining the contested nature of globalization as it is expressed in the restructuring of work. Rejecting conventional explanations of globalization as a process that automatically leads to transformations in working lives, or as a project that is strategically designed to bring about lean and flexible forms of production, this book advances an understanding of the social practices that constitute global change. Through case studies that span from the labour flexibility debates in Britain and Germany, to the strategies and tactics of corporations and workers, the author examines how globalization is interpreted and experienced in everyday life. Contestation, she argues, is about more than just direct protests and resistances. It has become a central feature of the practices that enable or confound global restructuring. This book offers students and scholars of international political economy, sociology and industrial relations an innovative framework for the analysis of globalisation and the restructuring of work.

Abstract

This book studies the making of the postcolonial author and text as a brand. It examines specific themes, wherein the postcolonial text acquires global visibility, even determining the nature of global debates: the authenticity of representing ‘native’ cultures, subalternity, indigeneity, and humanism. It studies the circulation of the postcolonial as literary-ethnic chic and the author as a globally mobile celebrity.

Abstract

This book follows discussions during a round table on globalization organized in Quebec City in 1998 by the International Political Science Association. The various contributions it contains are divided into three sections. The first examines the theoretical status of globalization and the relationship of states to global capitalism and transnational corporations, reminding us, among other things, that the same people who are pushing to reduce the role of the state (dismantling the welfare state, deregulation and privatization) require at the same time increased state intervention in other areas (more effective social controls). The second section analyses various cases of adaptation of the nation-state to the new context of globalization, whether they are cases of integration (such as German reunification) or disintegration (such as the division of Czechoslovakia). The third section, finally, takes up the questions of the second section, concerning the particular case of Quebec's relations with the rest of Canada.

Abstract

Democratization has become an important concept in the last ten years. With the end of the Cold War, the spread of globalization, and the extension of economic regulatory regimes, democratization has come to be seen as important to securing long-term political stability. Much has been written about democratization and gender in works on human rights, citizenship, women's movements and challenges to authoritarian regimes. This book, published in association with the United Nations, builds on this existing body of literature by looking at the relevance of national machineries for the advancement of women. Appropriate mechanisms through which the mainstreaming of gender can take place are considered, and the levels of governance involved - the relationship between gender mainstreaming and state structures, and the effect of this relationship on issues of decentralization, accountability, consultation and participation. It defines what the 'interests of women' are, and how and by what processes these interests are represented to the state policy making structures. Global strategies for the advancement of women, and how far these have penetrated at national level are considered. This is illuminated by a series of case studies - gender equality in Sweden and other Nordic countries, the Ugandan ministry of Gender, Culture and Social services, gender awareness in Central and Eastern Europe, and further examples from South Korea, the Lebanon, Beijing and Australia. This book will be of vital use to students of democratization, gender studies and politics, and is the first full-length appraisal of global strategies and national machineries for the advancement of women.

Abstract

Die Welt ist heute viel weniger ein globales Dorf als eine globale Stadt, eine „global city“. Dieses weltumspannende Netzwerk multidimensionaler urbaner Räume der Verdichtung steht dabei in einem wechselseitigen Verhältnis zu Globalisierung: es gestaltet sie zugleich, wie sie auch durch sie beständig mitgestaltet wird. Aber die Bedeutung von Städten ist alles andere als neu. Weltweit waren sie entscheidend für Kultur und Zivilisation, sie erlaubten eine Zentralisierung von Macht und Wissen un...

Abstract

This is an anthropological-sociological study of Lithuanian identity contours that are affected by the globalization. Compilers of the book suggests to start to talk about the national identity with the assumption that there are and there were no single and invariable Lithuanian model, however, no matter how various and movable would be the forms of identities, the nation consists of them. This study is an attempt to answer to the question – what does it mean to be Lithuanian today, on the ground of research.

Abstract

ca. 200 words; this text will present the book in all promotional forms (e.g. flyers). Please describe the book in straightforward and consumer-friendly terms.[enter Summary/Description]The globalization of the world’s religions leads to a variety of fusions whereby local elements blend with global religions, leading to hybrid local-global or glocal religious forms. Glocal forms of religion provide a hitherto insufficiently explored research agenda with the potential of further growth in the future. This volume introduces the basic tenets of this research agenda and offers examples from around the globe. In the volume’s individual chapters, authors explore a diverse tapestry of such forms that cover cases from the Caribbean, Japan, Finland, Eastern Europe, US, Korea, Southeast Asia and Central America. Glocal forms of religious expression exist across diverse religious traditions. In this volume, religious traditions specifically explored include Buddhism, Hinduism, folk or traditional religions, Eastern Orthodox Christianity & Protestantism. The study of glocal religions involves a trans-disciplinary group of scholars and researchers. In this volume, contributions come from the fields of sociology, archaeology, anthropology, history and religious studies. This collection is an indispensable reader for scholars and students who wish to explore the dynamics of glocal religion in their part of the world.
