1 Bound Together: How Traders, Preachers, Adventurers, and Warriors Shaped Globalization

Nayan Chanda

Viking, New Delhi, India, 2007, 0670081396 / 9780670081394, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
Since humans migrated from Africa and dispersed throughout the world, they have found countless ways and reasons to reconnect with each other. In this insightful and entertaining book, Nayan Chanda follows the exploits of traders, preachers, adventurers, and warriors throughout history as they have shaped and reshaped the world. For Chanda, globalization is a process of ever-growing interconnectedness and interdependence that began thousands of years ago and continues to this day with increasing speed and ease. In the end, globalization—from the lone adventurer carving out a new trade route to the expanding ambitions of great empires—is the product of myriad aspirations and apprehensions that define just about every aspect of our lives: what we eat, wear, ride, or possess is the product of centuries of human endeavor and suffering across the globe. Chanda reviews and illustrates the economic and technological forces at play in globalization today and concludes with a thought-provoking discussion of how we can and should embrace an inevitably global world.

4 Economic Globalisation and Human Rights

Wolfgang Benedek, Koen De Feyter, and Fabrizio Marrella (eds)

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2007, 9780521879969, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 155 x 235 Mm 
Economic globalisation is one of the guiding paradigms of the twenty-first century. The challenge it implies for human rights is fundamental, and key questions have up to now received no satisfying answers. How can human rights protect human dignity when economic globalisation has an adverse impact on local living conditions? How should human rights evolve in response to a global economy in which non-statal actors are decisive forces? Economic Globalisation and Human Rights sets out to assess these and other questions to ensure that, as economic globalization intensifies, human rights take up the central and crucial position that they deserve. Using a multidisciplinary methodology, leading scholars reflect on issues such as the need for global ethics, the localisation of human rights, the role of human rights in WTO law, and efforts to make international economic organisations more accountable and multinational corporations more socially responsible. ?Multidisciplinary approach enables reader to comprehensively understand the challenges of economic globalisation for human rights ?Contributors of standing ensure that the reader is aware of the status quo of research in different fields ?Holistic analysis guarantees that the reader gains an understanding of the current situation and of future developments Contents Introduction Koen De Feyter; Part I.

5 Empire in the Age of Globalisation: US Hegemony and Neoliberal Disorder

Ray Kiely

Orient BlackSwan, New Delhi, India, 2007, 8125031952 / 9788125031956, First Edition, Paperback, New, 14 x 22 Cm 
Empire in the Age of Globalisation is perfect for students of globalisation and international studies. It is a comprehensive critical introduction to the relationship between US hegemony and contemporary globalisation. Many introductory textbooks on globalisation tend to be simplistic and conservative. This book moves things forward, providing a critical review of the globalisation debate. Kiely argues that we can only approach a proper understanding of the contemporary world order by linking globalisation to debates on capitalism, imperialism and universal human rights. He explores US hegemony in this light, showing how ‘liberal internationalism?cannot be separated from capitalism, neo-liberalism and US empire building. Covering all the major issues, from globalisation theory to international economics, cultural imperialism and global governance, this will be of interest to anyone looking for a refreshing analytical approach.

6 Empire of Knowledge: Culture and Plurality in the Global Economy

Vinay Lal

Vistaar Publications, New Delhi, India, 2005, 8178295954 / 9788178295954, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
Offering a dissenting perspective on the politics of knowledge, this book is a powerful critique of the intellectual and cultural assumptions that underline the current processes of development, modernization and globalization. The author demonstrates that the world as we know it today is understood largely through categories that are the product of Western knowledge systems. His critique of the existing world order and his vision of possible futures encourage the reader to engage in the study of the West. Rather than merely reversing Orientalism, such a study would create a body of knowledge about the West that would enable people to better understand both themselves and the West. This important and lucidly written book deconstructs the cultural assumptions that have emerged alongside capitalism and offers a devastating critique of the politics of knowledge at the heart of all powerbroking.

12 Globalisation, Governance Reforms and Development in India

Kameshwar Choudhary (ed.)

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2007, 978076193583, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
Globalisation has emerged as a very powerful force affecting the whole world. In case of Third World Countries it is manifest in the introduction of a set of neoliberal reforms at the behest of multilaterals such as the World Bank and International Monetary fund under the tutelage of the trinity of advanced capitalist countries headed by u.s. representing the interests of global finance and corporates, but also with the cooperation of ruling regimes in many instances. Such reforms have been introduced in India starting with the BoP crises of 1991, which marks a clear shift in the model of development adopted in the country, from a state-directed model to a market-centred model. Globalisation amply benefits the privileged all over but adversely affects the marginalised peoples and countries in the world. This book provides a theoretico-conceptual overview of globalisation, and an analysis of state-level reforms, and the social, cultural and political dimensions of globalisation and reforms in India. This volume will be of much interest to researchers, teachers and students, The issues discussed in the volume will also draw the attention of civil society organisations and NGOs engaged in advocacy activities.

13 Globalization and Egalitarian Redistribution

Pranab Bardhan, Samuel Bowles, and Michael Wallerstein (eds)

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2006, 0195685512 / 9780195685510, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 15 x 23 Cm 
Can the welfare state survive in an economically integrated world? Many have argued that globalization has undermined national policies to raise the living standards and enhance the economic opportunities of the poor. This book, by sixteen of the world’s leading authorities in international economics and the welfare state, suggests a surprisingly different set of consequences: Globalization does not preclude social insurance and egalitarian redistribution ?but it does change the mix of policies that can accomplish these ends. Globalization and Egalitarian Redistribution demonstrates that the free flow of goods, capital, and labor has increased the inequality of volatility of labor earnings in advanced industrial societies ?while constraining governments?ability to tax the winners from globalization to compensate workers for their loss. This flow has meanwhile created opportunities for enhancing the welfare of the less well off in poor and middle-income countries. Comprising eleven essays framed by the editors?introduction and conclusion, this book represents the first systematic look at how globalization affects policies aimed at reducing inequalities. The contributors are Keith Banting, Pranab Bardhan, Carles Boix, Samuel Bowles, Minsik Choi, Richard Johnston, Covadonga Meseguer Yebra, Karl Ove Moene, Layna Mosley, Claus Offe, Ugo Pagano, Adam Przeworski, Kenneth Scheve, Matthew J.

25 India's Globalization: Evaluating the Economic Consequences

Baldev Raj Nayar

Vistaar Publications, New Delhi, India, 2007, 8178297582 / 9788178297583, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
This study systematically evaluates the economic consequences of globalization for India in the light of the attack of the critics against globalization on the grounds of economic stagnation, “deindustrialization? “denationalization? destabilization, and impoverishment. On the basis of abundant qualitative and quantitative data, it strongly repudiates the case of the critics, and demonstrates that India has been a significant beneficiary of the globalization process. The policy conclusion that flows from this experience is that India ought to be, in general, more open to globalization, in the interest of sustaining economic growth and enhancing the welfare of its people. To this end it should push forward with the reform agenda. Printed Pages: 112. 028519

Response Books, New Delhi, India, 2010, 8132102460 / 9788132102465, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
This book discusses the issues and challenges of organizing and managing in the context of a globalized world. It provides insights and perspectives on the realities of organization in a world where governance structures, organizational processes, management practices and employment relations are in a vortex of transformation. It analyzes the political, economic, sociological, cultural, institutional and legal factors that shape these realities. Globalization has thrown up fundamental questions on the identity, social values, national and local culture and history and even the future identity of societies. Managing and organizing a diverse organization in these times is, thus, a subject worth studying; Organizing and Managing in the Era of Globalization is an answer to this quest. This book will be useful for students and professionals of organizational design, organizational change and international management. Researchers in the fields of organization and management as well as globalization will also find it of immense value. Printed Pages: 472. 029619

33 Politics of Globalization

Samir Dasgupta and Jan Nederveen Pieterse (eds)

Sage Publications, New Delhi, India, 2009, 817829947X / 9788178299471, First Edition, Hardcover, New, New, 
Politics of Globalization presents an up-to-date perspective on the kaleidoscopic politics of globalization. The authors analyse the existing definitions of capitalism and argue that globalization and the consequent growing multi-polarity in world politics is not a crisis but a proliferation of capitalisms. This network of capitalisms becomes the framework of the politics of the new globalization. This compilation by social scientists across the globe is an empirical and theoretical exploration of the socio-political responses to globalization. The authors examine the impacts of the decline of the US domination in trade and finance and compare it to the rise of Asian economies, with special focus on China and India. The articles explore the multiple impacts of globalization: the impact of new global political relations on 21st century international division of labour, the relation between gender equality and globalization, trade union politics and globalization, ecological politics and globalization discourse, dual citizenship and global politics, and globalization of language and culture. They also discuss the anti-globalization movements and argue that these might change the course of current trends in globalization processes. This book will be of great value for social scientists and economists as well as politicians, social activists, and other professionals interested in the study of globalization and its consequences.
