Power in the Global Age by Ulrich Beck
Book DescriptionThis brilliant new book by one of Europe's leading social thinkers develops a far-reaching analysis of the social, economic and political transformations of the modern age. For centuries the nation-state has provided the principal framework of power in the modern world and the basis of legitimate domination, but today this is changing. How should we conceptualize a world and a set of global dynamics in which the nation-state order is being increasingly undermined?
