This is a systematically revised and updated new edition of a highly-acclaimed text which was an immediate bestseller on courses around the world. The second edition takes a broader perspective giving increased coverage of other dimensions of globalization alongside its core focus on the rise of supraterritoriality which the author argues is globalization's most distinctive feature.

About the Author:

Jan Aart Scholte is Professor of Politics and International Studies, and Associate of the Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation, University of Warwick.

Review:

"[A]n impressive analysis of contemporary globalization that convincingly demonstrates why superterritoriality needs to be taken more seriously in the academy and beyond." -- Tony McGrew, New Political Economy

"[S]uperb...[T]he theoretical perspective works! It informs! It clarifies! It stimulates!...This is a book that can serve as an introductory text in all fields. It is the kind of work that can help promote movement in the direction the academy, its classrooms, and its research centers should be going: toward the unity of knowledge in a world ever more tied together by nonterritorial processes, structures, and norms." -- James N. Rosenau, International Studies Review

"Do we need another book on globalization? Jan Aart Scholte is modest enough to pose this question, but his text is a plausible riposte. What we get in here is the most accessible textbook yet produced... Scholte's book is the best available version of the globalization paradigm." -- Martin Shaw, Millennium
