Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Standard academic text on globalization and its effect on resistance movements all over the world Analyzes the role of globalization in fuelling Islamic fundamentalism Well-established contributors include Immanuel Wallerstein and Thomas Reifer This book explores the closely related dynamics of globalization, hegemony and resistance movements in the modern world. Complimented by dramatic explorations of the new trans-border resistance movements, from the contemporary labor movement to the resurgence of nationalism, this book moves beyond the traditional focus on cycles of rise and decline of great powers to asses the pressing questions at the intersection of contemporary globalizations and hegemonic rise, decline and resurgence of civilizations. Moreover, the book provides a compelling analysis of the role of contemporary globalization in the resurgence of Islamic activism across the globe and the challenges this poses for traditional theories of modernity and global social movements.
