The Nation in the Global Era: Conflict and Transformation offers unique perspectives into a range of important current topics for both activists and scholars concerned with globalization. The articles combine the study of globalization as an integrated world system with the specifics of how individual nations and groups are inserted into the larger economic, social, cultural and political patterns. This essential approach seeks out those forces that create a shared world system, yet understands the multiple levels and variances under which that system develops. Chapters explore the relationship between class and state under the impact of globalization; how nations, particularly in the South, are affected by globalization; and the development of national identity and consciousness within the context of global relationships.
