Containing articles on approaches to and theories of globalization, this collection addresses the making of the modern world from different disciplinary perspectives.
This set investigates the major components of globalization in its most comprehensive sense: the nation-state and the system of international relations; the question of self-identity and the individual in the globalization process; human rights, citizenship and the environment; institutional questions including matters of media communication, education, tourism, multinational corporations, migration and intercultural communication.
New introductions and a thorough index make this work an indispensable research tool.
