This text takes as its dominant theme "globalization" (the apparent intensification of global patterns of interdependence) and its implications for the autonomy of the modern nation-state. Following an introduction which examines the theoretical debates framing the contemporary study of world politics, the work is structured around key processes of globalization which are shaping the dynamics of global politics today. These key processes are: the globalization of superpower rivalry; the globalizing force of technological advance; the emergence of a global economy; and the globalizing consequences of modernization. Throughout, the authors pay particular attention to a critical evaluation of these globalizing processes, as well as to their consequences for sovereignty and autonomy of the modern nation-state.
