This new edition of Manfred Steger's award-winning book explores the three principal ideologies of our time: the neoliberal "market globalism," the "justice globalism" of the global justice movement, and the "jihadist globalism" of radical Islamists. 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? 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.
Manfred B. Steger is professor of global and transnational sociology at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa. He is also an adjunct professor of global studies at Western Sydney University.
