Series editor's preface

Warwick Studies in Globalisation are books arising out of the activities of the ESRC Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation at the University of Warwick (CSGR). Founded in October 1997 as a result of its success in the ESRC's Thematic Priorities Competition to establish a research centre in the area of globalisation studies, CSGR has rapidly become an international site for the study of key issues in the theory and practice of globalisation and regionalisation. The Centre's agenda is avowedly inter-disciplinary. Research staff are drawn from international relations, political science, economics, law and sociology. While the Centre is committed first and foremost to scholarly excellence, it also strives to be problem solving in its methodological orientation and outlook.

Globalisation is seen as multi-dimensional - economic, political, cultural, ideological. Thus work in CSGR sees globalisation in at least two ways. First, as the emergence of a set of sequences and processes that are increasingly unhindered by territorial and jurisdictional barriers and that enhance the spread of trans-border practices in economic, political and socio-cultural domains. Second, as a discourse of political and economic knowledge offering multiple views of how to make the postmodern world manageable. Centre research and publications attempt to ask what kinds of constraints and opportunities globalisation poses for independent policy initiatives on the part of policy-makers in both public and private domains, and under what conditions these constraints are enhanced or mitigated by globalising tendencies.

Within these broad contexts, empirical work at CSGR focuses on three principal areas of research: (i) on how particular regional projects in Asia, Europe and the Americas relate to wider globalising pressures and
