Central Currents in Globalization Series:

The concept of 'globalization' has in an extraordinarily short time become the dominant motif of the contemporary social sciences. Central Currents in Globalization is an integrated collection of four multi-volume sets that represent the systematic mapping of globalization studies. The series sets out the contours of a field that now crosses the boundaries of all the older disciplines in the social sciences and humanities. The result is a gold-standard collection of over 320 of the most important writings on globalization, structured around four interrelated themes: Violence; Economy; Culture; and Politics.

The series editor, Paul James (RMIT, Australia), is joined by sixteen internationally-renowned co-editors from around the globe who bring their subject expertise to each volume, including Jonathan Friedman, Tom Nairn, R.R. Sharma, Manfred Steger, Ronen Palan and Micheline Ishay. Together the four sets provide an unparalleled resource on globalization, providing both broad coverage of the subject, historical depth and contemporary relevance.

Features:

- Compiles the most important English-language articles and translations in the various sub-themes of globalization.

- Combines contemporary and classic pieces, together with some lesser-known works that have nevertheless made a major contribution.

- Represents the vast range of cultural, philosophical and political approaches, both within and beyond the dominant British and North American traditions.

- Each volume employs the same accessible structure: Historical Developments, Key Debates and Critical Projections.

- Each volume is introduced by an accessible and broad-ranging 10,000 word overview, and each section is prefaced by short contextualizations of the chosen articles.

Globalization and Violence:

Volume 1 - Globalizing Empires: Old and New

(with Tom Nairn, RMIT, Australia) examines the historically-deep process of empire-building, bringing it up-to-date with contemporary debates about the existence and nature of 'empire'.

Volume 2 - Colonial and Postcolonial Globalizations

(with Phillip Darby, University of Melbourne, Australia) looks at the violence of colonialization and decolonization, as well as the military and structural forms of postcolonial violence visible today.

Volume 3 - Globalizing War and Intervention

(with Jonathan Friedman, Lund University, Sweden) focuses on the changing nature of military intervention, and covers the consequences of the 'world wars', the debates over humanitarian intervention and conditional sovereignty, and global terrorism.

Volume 4 - Transnational Conflict

(with R.R. Sharma, Jawaharlal Nehru University, India) complements the third volume by examining the different sources and consequences of contemporary transnational conflict including the international slave trade, refugee flows, and diaspora support for nationalist conflicts.

Each volume is introduced by a contextualizing essay written by Paul James and the co-editor.
