Item description for Globalization and the Evolving World Society (International Studies in Sociology and Social Anthropology) by Proshanta K. Nandi...
This volume brings together scholars in the field of cultural studies to examine the concept of globalization, deliberate on the character of its multifaceted nature and expressions, and delineate its impact on the emerging world economy, politics, culture and science. A number of substantive issues such as the emergence of new global economic inequality; culture and the role of the trans-nationals; nature of the emerging global enviromental regimes; rise of the NICs; and the conflicting role of the nation-states in the face of the advancing forces of globalization are addressed. It is argued that globalization should be perceived neither as an unbounded economic progress nor as an expansion of Western domination. Globalization is, rather, defined as a new development strategy - a process of change that can be planned, guided and controlled. For national political and business leaders of the world, the text aims to provide a blueprint of the emerging areas of policy concerns and guidance. For the world of social science, it seeks to present a road-map of the emrging intellectual issues and challenges.
