Interpreting Globalisation

Perspectives in International Relations

Edited by: Rajen Harshe

This volume brings together fresh perspectives from Indian and Russian scholars as they interpret the relationship between globalisation and international relations. By anchoring their analyses round the changing status of the nation-state, the contributors unravel a m?lange of complex, mutually contradictory and multiple social processes that operate, simultaneously, at the national, regional and transnational levels in a globalising world. In the process, they unveil and reflect on the uneasy co-existence of the movements towards global integration through communication networks, finance, technologies and trade with the contrary trends towards disintegration built round the resurgence of local issues and regional identities that undermine the very existence of the nation-state. On a broad canvas of inquiry, the contributors handle significant themes concerning security, civil society, international trade, regional cooperation, regional identities and capitalism to untangle the relationship between globalisation and international relations. Published in association with INDIAN COUNCIL OF SOCIAL SCIENCE RESEARCH, NEW DELHI.
