View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This work examines the plethora of competitive strategies adopted by the modern state: from the exclusive hegemonic strategies of the most powerful states to the parasitical strategies of the mini-states that serve as tax havens and flags of conveniencethe welfare policies of the "shielders" to the repressed and exploited labour forces of "downwardly mobile" Third World states; from emerging continental economies of NAFTA and the EU, to the utter despair of collapsed states structurally unable to compete in the world economy. By investigating these strategic responses, this book presents a comprehensive study of the tactics and strategies employed by states to achieve greater stability and strength with the global political economy.

"'One of the few really important books on globalization, above all for its rare understanding of the centrality, rather than the marginalization, of states in the evolution and management of today's global capitalism' Leo Panitch, Distinguished Research Professor of Political Science, York University, Toronto; 'With this book, Palan and Abbott have built an invaluable bridge between the particularisms of comparative politics and the generalisms of globalization. This is the first book I've come across that says national policy responses are pushed by common factors' Professor Susan Strange; 'In understanding the implications of globalization, the literature on national economic competitiveness has been surprisingly quiet on the influence on outcomes of institutions power and politics, while the literature on international relations displays a poor understanding of what makes the economy work. This book provides an excellent bridge, in carefully forging an institutional position capable of explaining national difference and diversity without ignoring the influence of transnational forces.' Professor Ash Amin, University of Durham"
