Product description


In the spirit of ecumenical scholarship of the left, I can heartily recommend The Twilight of the Nation State. It is by far the most convincing case I have seen for the globalization hypothesis, as well as being an impassioned manifesto against the rich and powerful on behalf of the world's disempowered majority. -- Louis Proyect Prem Jha's book is a thoughtful, well-documented, and passionately argued account of the danger that the present crisis of US hegemony may be headed toward endless chaos rather than a new world order. It should be read by anyone who cares about the future of world society. -- Giovanni Arrighi, Johns Hopkins University Prem Jha is one of the few experts on globalization from the developing world. He offers a cogent account of its grand possibilities but also warns against its pitfalls. He does so by avoiding the trap of viewing it solely through the lens of economics. His book is a timely warning that globalisation is bringing about profound changes in the nation state and the international order. These need to be fully understood in order to be managed. -- Shashi Tharoor, Undersecretary General for Public Affairs of the United Nations, New York
