Description - Reconstituting the Global Liberal Order by Kanishka Jayasuriya
The events of September 11, 2001 were a significant watershed in the emerging global order. The nature and consequences of this changing global order, however, remain unclear. This book argues that this new order is as much the result of issues relating to the evolving methods and forms of governance, as of the new role and position of the United States in the world system. Using an innovative framework, derived from the work of Carl Schmidt, Dr Jayasuriya explores the nexus between domestic political and constitutional structures and the global order, and examines how the post-war framework of international liberalism is crumbling under the new pressures of globalization. As well as looking at the implications of 9/11 for the global order, Kanishka Jayasuriya: - Relates the events of 9/11 to the deep transformations of the post war global order. - Emphasizes the importance of the rise of the new regulatory state. - Examines the new politics of fear in liberal democracies including the US, UK and Australia . - Studies the appropriation of the "language of the left" by conservative forces.
This unique and timely study will interest students and researchers of international political economy and globalization.
