Deciphering the global
Globalization is not just about changing relations between the inside of the nation-state and the outside of the international system. It cuts across received categories, creating myriad multilayered intersections, overlapping playing fields, and actors skilled at working across these boundaries. People are at once rooted and rootless, local producers and global consumers, threatened in their identities yet continually remaking those identities. Deciphering the Global analyzes such complex worlds, looking not merely at glocalization or transnationalization but at the global macrocosm within the humansocial, economic and politicalmicrocosm.
