In this volume Max Pensky has assembled the best in the field to address the phenomenon of globalization. Beginning with Habermas's now famous text on the global anti-war movement, Globalizing Critical Theory provides a sweeping vision of globalization in its various forms. For those interested in a critical examination of the global aspects of war, the public sphere, race and memory-as well as science, technology and aesthetics-this is required reading. -- David Rasmussen, Ph.D., Boston College

The Critical Social Theory of the Frankfurt School was formulated to grasp the transition from nineteenth-century laissez-faire capitalism to early 20th century 'state-capitalism' or 'organized capitalism.' Today we are experiencing another epochal shift from Fordism to post-Fordism, from national economies to neo-liberal globalization. The powerful essays in this volume seek to come to terms with this new shift in its political and socio-cultural ramifications. A critical theory of globalization involves globalizing and transforming critical theory itself. -- Seyla Benhabib
