Description - Global Politics by Anthony G. McGrew

This innovative new text is derived from a highly successful Open University course of the same name. It takes as its dominant theme, the contested issue of 'globalization', (the apparent intensification of global patterns of interdependence) and its implications for the autonomy of the modern nation-state.Following a conceptual introduction, which critically examines the theoretical debates framing the contemporary study of world politics, the work is structured around four key processes of globalization which are shaping the dynamics of global politics today. These key processes are: the global impact of great power relations: the globalizing tendencies of technological innovation: the existence of a global economy: and the globalizing force of modernity. Throughout, the authors pay particular attention to a critical evaluation of these processes, as well as to their consequences for the sovereignty and autonomy of the modern nation-state.
