Review quote

`No subject is of more relevance to the social sciences as a whole, and none has occasioned a wider range of divergence in approach, than that of globalisation. Globalisation is not just a process of importance in its own right but one which can test the pre-existing, bounded and national, limits of academic disciplines. The impact of this question has, however, too often been at the expense of precision. The contemporary debate on globalisation is in need, above all, of anchoring in conceptual and theoretical precision, in historical perspective, in facts. It is this challenge which the present collection admirably addresses: complementing analysis of change within the international economy with debate on the continued, if altered, role of the state, it at the same time explores changing patterns of governance and the possibilities that open, in an altered international situation, for new forms of actor and norms. Higgott and Payne have produced a collection that is stimulating, focused and original.' -- Fred Halliday, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK
