Baldev Raj Nayar has long been an insightful observer of comparative and international politics. In this book he fixes his gaze on globalization, and presents a political thesis to explain what is widely viewed as a primarily economic phenomenon. He argues, first of all, that the recent round of globalization is very diferent from the economic integration seen earlier in world history. Second, and more critically, he contends that geopolitics has been a driving force in the way globalization has evolved. Like all his arguments before, this new argument is worthy of careful attention. -- Ashutosh Varshney, University of Michigan For policymakers, scholars, and the general public in any developing country, understanding in the context of globalization is of elemental importance today. However, this requires a prior comprehension of the nature, causes, and consequences of globalization. The key underlying concern in this volume is the lesson that the evolution and contemporary structuring of globalization holds for developing countries. Cast within the overall conceptual framework of international relations theory, it explores how the process of globalization still remains 'truncated'--basically confined to the 'triad' of the US, Europe, and Japan. For Baldev Raj Nayar, the explanation for both the advance of contemporary globalization and its 'truncated' nature lies in geopolitics. Indeed, the volume is distinctive for its underlining the central role that geopolitics has played in the contemporary structuring of globalization, focusing specially on the US as the hegemonic power along with its European allies--the 'regime makers' in the modern-day international system. The book operates on a vast theoretical and empirical canvas. It informs readers on the nature of globalization and the role of markets and geopolitics. It then applies its finds to the understanding of developmental success in the original 'Asian tigers', the Southeast Asian nations, and China. Its treatment of India and Pakistan is noteworthy for its illumination of the contrast between the two countries in the interaction of geopolitics and economic policy. Printed Pages: 311.
