The Clash of Globalizations
Neo-Liberalism, the Third Way and Anti-globalization
This work addresses the politics of globalization through an examination of neo-liberalism, the third way, and anti-capitalist responses and alternatives. It utilises a Marxist approach, not only to challenge the claims made by apologists for 'actually existing globalization', but also to explain, contextualise and problematise the rise of anti-globalization politics. Central to the work is a critique of globalization theory, neo-liberalism and the third way; an examination of the role of the state as an agent of globalization, particularly the hegemonic US state; a theorisation of the nature of uneven development in the global order; and an examination of the political implications of these issues for progressive alternatives to neo-liberal globalization.
