Politics of Globalization presents an up-to-date perspective on the kaleidoscopic politics of globalization. The authors analyse the existing definitions of capitalism and argue that globalization and the consequent growing multi-polarity in world politics is not a crisis but a proliferation of capitalisms. This network of capitalisms becomes the framework of the politics of the new globalization. This compilation by social scientists across the globe is an empirical and theoretical exploration of the socio-political responses to globalization. The authors examine the impacts of the decline of the US domination in trade and finance and compare it to the rise of Asian economies, with special focus on China and India. The articles explore the multiple impacts of globalization: the impact of new global political relations on 21st century international division of labour, the relation between gender equality and globalization, trade union politics and globalization, ecological politics and globalization discourse, dual citizenship and global politics, and globalization of language and culture. They also discuss the anti-globalization movements and argue that these might change the course of current trends in globalization processes. This book will be of great value for social scientists and economists as well as politicians, social activists, and other professionals interested in the study of globalization and its consequences. Printed Pages: 472.
