by Manfred B. Steger

This new edition of Manfred Steger's award-winning book explores the three principal ideologies of our time: the dominant "market globalism" based on a neoliberal vision of the world as a single marketplace, the "justice globalism" developed over the last decade by a transnational coalition of global civil society forces, and the "jihadist globalism" of radical Islamists seeking to galvanize their global community of believers into violent action. Market globalism has responded to these challengers by turning into "imperial globalism"—a political belief system that marries the capitalist language of the 1990s with the security concerns of our post-9/11 world. Steger, one of the world's leading scholars on these subjects, explores globalization's central questions: What, exactly, are the core claims of these conflicting globalisms? How does the imperial globalism of the 2000s differ from the market globalism of the 1990s? How has justice globalism managed to mature into a coherent ideology? What are the most likely future trajectories of this great ideological struggle of the twenty-first century? Written with impressive historical and theoretical breadth, this groundbreaking work is essential reading for all those concerned with the key questions that our shrinking world must face.

I needed this book for class and I must say that it was very convenient to obtain and very helpful for the class in which I am required to take.
I cannot express my hatred for this book more emphatically. I found it to be highly presumptuous, incredibly skewed in the facts presented, and in some contexts, highly misinformed if not offering disinformation. Where Steger’s facts and quotes were not slanted or taken out of context, his points were ambiguous, redundant, and offered little original insight. A waste of 200 pages. You would be better off reading the original material he quotes from a drawing your own conclusions.
