Since the 1950s, globalization has been an increasingly irresistible trend and one that has exerted a tremendous impact on the political, economic, military, environmental, and social fortunes of mankind – and yet, existing theories in humanities and social sciences have been fundamentally built upon the traditional “nation-state” model. These two volumes, a pioneering work on global studies to be published out of China, aim at creating a new theoretical framework against the backdrop of globalization.
This volume discusses globalization on the supranational level. The editors reveal the complexity of global studies by examining the multi-level and multi-dimensional nature of globalization, analyzing processes and systems of global society against the backdrop of globalization, and exploring the construction of a stable and rational global order.
These two volumes are an essential reference for scholars and students in politics, economics, international relations, and law.
