Beyond the Great Divide

Is globalization being eclipsed by a resurgent geopolitics? Does
the war on terror denote the end of globalization or a new phase of
militarized globalization? Empire or globalization ? are
these the right terms to describe the current global order?

The second edition of this highly successful book tests the
claims of those who dismiss the continuing significance of
globalization through a comprehensive assessment of contemporary
global trends. In the aftermath of 9/11, and the war in Iraq, there
has been much talk of the end of globalization. Held and McGrew
argue that these post-mortems for globalization are entirely
premature. They show this by focusing upon the primary structures
of world order namely: patterns of governance, organized violence,
the economy, culture and environmental degradation. Patterns of
inequality, exclusion and domination are also assessed.


Building upon this analysis, the authors present the case for
continuing to take globalization seriously as both a description
and explanation of our current global condition. They also ask the
vital question: can globalization be tamed? Held and McGrew explore
whether a more just and stable world order is either desirable or
feasible and present an alternative ethical and political agenda
for the twenty-first century ? a global covenant of
cosmopolitan social democracy.


The second edition of this powerful and original book has been
comprehensively updated, with three new chapters added. The book
will appeal to all those who remain intrigued, confused or simply
baffled by the controversy about globalization and its consequences
for the twenty-first century world order.
