Globalization is usually said to be about markets, power and culture. "Whither Globalization? "goes further, arguing that globalization may also be understood as a way of knowing and representing the world. Mittelman debunks several prevalent myths about globalization and 'anti-globalization', presenting alternatives to this force and indicating a new common sense about future world order. Drawing on considerable original research, this book shows how globalization itself and globalization studies have changed since 9/11. Compact and accessible, "Whither Globalization?" is a major contribution to the study of globalization by one of the leading scholars in the field and is essential reading for students of international relations and international political economy.
