Globalization, the state, and violence
Friedman and a distinguished group of contributors offer a compelling analysis of globalization and the lethal explosiveness that characterizes the current world order. In particular, they investigate global processes and political forces that determine networks of crime, commerce and terror, and reveal the economic, social and cultural fragmentation of transnational networks. The authors analyze the increasing criminalization of ethnic populations, the massively destabililizing effect of migration processes, and new forms of transnational criminal networks that represents disintegration of larger homogeneous territories. This book will be a valuable reference in anthropology, social theory, international politics and economics, ethnic and immigration studies, and economic history.
