Globalization and Economy

Four Volume Set
Edited by:
  • Paul James - Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Australia

June 2007 | 1 832 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Central Currents in Globalization Series

The concept of 'globalization' has in an extraordinarily short time become the dominant motif of the contemporary social sciences. Central Currents in Globalization is an integrated collection of four multi-volume sets that represent the systematic mapping of globalization studies. The series sets out the contours of a field that now crosses the boundaries of all the older disciplines in the social sciences and humanities. The result is a gold-standard collection of over 320 of the most important writings on globalization, structured around four interrelated themes: Violence; Economy; Culture; and Politics.

The series editor, Paul James (RMIT, Australia), is joined by sixteen internationally-renowned co-editors from around the globe who bring their subject expertise to each volume, including Jonathan Friedman, Tom Nairn, R.R. Sharma, Manfred Steger, Ronen Palan and Micheline Ishay. Together the four sets provide an unparalleled resource on globalization, providing both broad coverage of the subject, historical depth and contemporary relevance.

Key Features:
  • Compiles the most important English-language articles and translations in the various sub-themes of globalization
  • Combines contemporary and classic pieces, together with some lesser-known works that have nevertheless made a major contribution
  • Represents the vast range of cultural, philosophical, and political approaches, both within and beyond the dominant British and North American traditions
  • Each volume employs the same accessible structure: Historical Developments, Key Debates, and Critical Projections
  • Each volume is introduced by an accessible and broad-ranging 10,000 word overview, and each section is prefaced by short contextualizations of the chosen articles  

Set 2: Globalization and Economy
Edited by Paul James, with Barry Gills, Heikki Patomäki, Ronen Palan and Robert O'Brien

Volume 1: Global Markets and Capitalism (with Barry Gills, University of Newcastle, UK) examines the relationship between global trade, commodity relations, and economic development and covers mainstream takes on economic globalization as well as the two major radical approaches to global markets, world systems theory and dependency theory

Volume 2: Global Finance and the New Global Economy (with Heikki Patomäki, Helsinki University, Finland) focuses on globalization and money, finance, and taxation, linking it to the new form of knowledge-based economies

Volume 3: Global Economic Institutions (with Ronen Palan, University of Sussex, UK) examines the global institutions and forums of economic governance—the WTO, the World Bank, the IMF, and the World Economic Forum

Volume 4: Globalizing Labor and Global Class (with Robert O'Brien, McMaster University, Canada) considers the changing nature of class and labor from the nineteenth century to the present, including the rise of a global labor movement

Each volume is introduced by a contextualizing essay written by Paul James and the co-editor.
