Inequality is becoming an urgent issue of world politics at the end of the twentieth century. Globalization is not only exacerbating the gap between rich and poor in the world but is also further dividing those states and peoples that have political power and influence from those without. While the powerful shape more `global' rules and norms about investment, military security, environmental and social policy and the like, the less powerful are becoming `rule-takers', often of rules or norms they cannot or will not enforce. The consequences for world politics are profound. The evidence presented in Inequality, Globalization, and World Politics suggests that globalization is creating sharper, more urgent problems for states and international institutions to deal with. Yet at the same time, investigations into eight core areas of world politics suggest that growing inequality is reducing the capacity of governments and existing international organizations to manage these problems effectively. The eight areas surveyed include: international order, international law, welfare and social policy, global justice, regionalism and multilateralism, environmental protection, gender equality, military power, and security.

MEDIA REVIEWS
helpful ... valuable ... careful assessment of the evidence and an extensive critical review of the literature ... can be read by non-experts and is written without jargon. * Paul Hirst, Int. & Global Political Economy, Economics & Development. *
There are so many books on globalization that a new one should have something distinctive to say in order to justify its publication ... This edited volume more than justifies its existence and is of a consistently high standard. * Paul Hirst, Int. & Global Political Economy, Economics & Development. *
helpful ... valuable ... careful assessment of the evidence and an extensive critical review of the literature ... can be read by non-experts and is written without jargon. * Paul Hirst, Int. & Global Political Economy, Economics & Development. *
well written ... the book should be among the required reading lists for graduate students studying global change. * Jnl of Global Social Policy. *
This edited volume ... is of a consistently high standard. It focuses on an issue that has been relatively neglected in the globalization literature: the close connection between economic internationalization and the growth of inequality within and between nations. * Paul Hirst, The Royal Inst. of Int. Affairs, Vol.76, No.4, Oct 00. *
This book is helpful because it sees inequality as a continuing and structural problem and yet does not exhibit the hostility to growing international trade of many anti-globalization protesters ... It is also valuable in putting open-ended analysis before instant policy solutions. * Paul Hirst, The Royal Inst. of Int. Affairs, Vol.76, No.4, Oct 00. *
The book can be read by non-experts and is written without jargon. * Paul Hirst, The Royal Inst. of Int. Affairs, Vol.76, No. 4, Oct. 00. *
