This book explores the various aspects of globalization, especially the role played by geopolitics in its contemporary structuring. It focuses on the role of the US as the hegemonic power along with its European allies. Together, these powers constitute the regime makers in the modern day international system. The others in the system are to varying degrees simply regime takers. Needless to say the regime makers, particularly the US, determine the nature, scope and speed of globalization, and understanding their behaviour and its underlying determinants are crucial for the regime takers. The study operates on an empirically vast canvas, first proceeding to theoretically inform on the nature of globalization and its effect on markets, hegemony, and concentration of economic and political power. It applies findings to the growth of the original Asian tigers, the Southeast Asian nations, China, and the resulting and important influences on India and Pakistan.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Baldev Raj Nayar has long been an insightful observer of comparative and international politics. In this book he fixes his gaze on globalization, and presents a political thesis to explain what is widely viewed as a primarily economic phenomenon. He argues, first of all, that the recent round of
globalization is very diferent from the economic integration seen earlier in world history. Second, and more critically, he contends that geopolitics has been a driving force in the way globalization has evolved. Like all his arguments before, this new argument is worthy of careful attention."--
