"Globalization Theory" is the fourth volume in the highly acclaimed Global transformations series. It follows in the footsteps of "Global Transformations", the "Global Transformations Reader" and "Governing Globalization". All these volumes have been widely adopted in courses on globalization and global governance across the world, and "Understanding Globalization" will find a place alongside these texts. This book focuses on elucidating leading theoretical approaches to understanding and explaining globalization, both in its current form and potential future shapes. It is divided into two parts: the first examines competing explanatory theories of globalization in its contemporary form and the second looks at competing prescriptions for the future of globalization. The book's contributors are world renowned experts in their field, including G. John Ikenberry, Michael Doyle, Layna Mosley, Alex Callinicos, Anthony McGrew, Thomas Risse, Roland Robertson, John Tomlinson, Saskia Sassen, David Held, Thomas Pogge, Chris Brown and Andrew Kuper. The book is designed as a textbook for courses on globalization and global governance.
