Author Biography - Gillian Youngs
This volume is an insightful, fresh and broad-ranging evaluation of the conceptual challenges of globalization and the new information era. We are living in an unparalleled era of globalization; a world of Internet connectivity and emerging markets in which borders are becoming ever more permeable and trade increasingly global. From technology and change to knowledge and power, this book examines how established theoretical traditions of international relations and global political economy are shifting in the information age. Written from a critical perspective, it analyzes how information and technology are becoming of greater structural relevance to our understanding of globalization. By addressing the linkages between these two together with current socio-economic developments, Gillian Youngs argues that technology is one of the key ways in which we can study how power is attained and maintained in global political economy. This volume is divided into three sections: * time/space frameworks * borders and inequality * technofutures and power. Global Political Economy in the Information Age will be of interest to students and scholars of international political economy, global governance, Internet politics, international economics, and politics and international relations in general.
