Book News
Having argued since the 1970s that globalization had replaced the territorial static-state framework established during the 17th century, Ferguson (global affairs, Rutgers U.-Newark) and Mansbach (political science, Iowa State U.) now feel it necessary to ask whether globalization is reversible, or whether it will overcome the obstacles in its path and intensify in future decades. Among the obstacles they see are the 9/11 attack and the subprime mortgage debacle. Their topics include globalization in historical perspective, globalization and information and communication technologies, the global versus the local, regional dynamics in Europe and Asia, and the balance sheet.
