Globalization is the first volume which systematically encompasses the debates and the results of research of political scientists on all core aspects of the interrelation between politics and economics in the process of globalization. This volume shows how research on globalization has reached a degree of differentiation and depth that makes it necessary and attractive to assess the state-of-the-art and perspectives for further research. With contributions from international experts including Andreas Busch, Nadine Haase and Edgar Grande.
