Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0814781195, Hardcover)

Though perhaps still in its infancy, globalization has quickly become one of the most dramatic phenomena in recent human history. As the international mobility of capital continues to accelerate and the information revolution renders the idea of a global village ever more vivid, we need to ask what effect this globalization is having on the citizens of this increasingly interconnected world.

What conflicts arise as markets merge and multinational corporations acquire a level of influence and power that increasingly challenges governmental authority? How do we now distinguish between the local and the national and international, and prioritize our commitments to each? How has globalization affected our beliefs about rights, justice, the distribution of wealth, nationalism, statism, and responsibility, and, as importantly, our ability to act on these beliefs?

Bringing together prominent scholars from the U.S. and England to address these crucial questions, Global Justice is, as are all NOMOS volumes, remarkable for the quality and originality of its essays.
