An Unruly World? Globalization, Governance, and Geography

Synopsis

Examining how fast transnational capitalism is re-making the rules of the game in a variety of different places, domains, and sectors, An Unruly World focuses on a wide range of issues: from analysis of "soft capitalism" and the post-Cold War organizational drives of international trade unions, to the clamor of states to reinvent welfare policy and the efforts of citizen groups to challenge trade and financial regimes. This book brilliantly argues that the rules governing the global economy today are more strictly enforced by international organizations and rhetoric than ever before.
