Theory of the Global State: Globality as an Unfinished Revolution

Front Cover
Cambridge University Press, Nov 30, 2000 - Political Science - 316 pages
This ambitious book rewrites the terms of debate about globalization. Focusing on two major new concepts--the unfinished global-democratic revolution and the global-Western state--Martin Shaw evaluates global change, considering the radical implications for social, political and international theory, and offering a fundamental critique of modern social thought and mainstream global theory. Required reading for sociology, politics and international relations, Theory of the Global State offers a historical, theoretical and political framework for understanding state and society in the emerging global age.
