The world is simultaneously approaching a number of crises; from climate change, to global inequity, unbalanced population growth, resource shortage and terrorism. Jonathan Porritt, in this well-argued book, recognises the role that globalism plays as both part of the problem and as an essential part of the solution. He addresses different possible modes of globalism and challenges the world's leaders to reform the way business as we know it is done. A sequel to his 2007 book Capitalism as if the World Matters, Globalism and Regionalism should be read by everyone who has an interest in the future of our planet.

These papers are a seminal source of discussion for what is simply the most profound shift of U.S. strategy in half a century. The 13 essays and keynotes by Colin Powell address potential flash points of conflict likely to affect long-range U.S. planning, as well as salient political, economic and military developments likely to dominate particular regions of the world -- from the Middle East and East Asia to Africa and Latin America. This is in effect a workbook for understanding national security in the 20th century's final decade. 6 maps.

Regionalism and Globalization represents research on three thematics: Appalachia, Global Computerization and Globalization. First, the spatial expression of corporate national and transnational capitalism essentially created the peripheralization of Appalachia and today fuels the development of underdevelopment in the region. Computerization, a second thematic concern, is essentially perceived as one of the more significant instruments facilitating the technological compression of the globe. In fact, as computerization is more comprehensively embedded in the techno-social aspects of globalization, it now becomes possible to speak of global computerization or the objective computerization of the globe. Finally, Globalization is not merely a theme but a comprehensive paradigmatic shift in how we know the world. It is further, a systematic, overarching process subsuming, and in fact, configuring and reordering the former two constructs of Appalachia and Computerization. Additionally explored research includes global religion & education, international organizations, popular culture and the global internet, global sociology, the concept of humanity, and finally the global implications of Windows and Linux computer operating systems.

This new study is devoted to understanding how international terrorism is shaped, how it evolves and what we can expect in the future. Drawing upon research and methods outside the traditional focus, and by taking both a theoretical approach and a new practical predictive perspective, it delivers a fresh and fascinating contribution to terrorism studies. While predicting terrorism is a highly speculative business, there are ways of identifying certain long-term causes, driving forces and their links with society. Terrorists are usually integral players in local and sometimes global politics. Hence, when the local, regional and international contexts change, so does terrorism. Thoroughly reviewing the body of literature on the causes of terrorism, this study also combines predictive and futuristic analyses on globalisation, supported by a range of key case studies. It spans from the transformation of international relations, the globalisation of the market economy, demographic factors, ideological shifts and technological changes. The result is a set of key conclusions about the future patterns of terrorism, which are not simply best guesses, but also backed up by solid research. This book will be of great interest to all students and scholars of terrorism, globalisation, politics and international relations.

Biomedical advances have made it possible to identify and manipulate features of living organisms in useful ways--leading to improvements in public health, agriculture, and other areas. The globalization of scientific and technical expertise also means that many scientists and other individuals around the world are generating breakthroughs in the life sciences and related technologies. The risks posed by bioterrorism and the proliferation of biological weapons capabilities have increased concern about how the rapid advances in genetic engineering and biotechnology could enable the production of biological weapons with unique and unpredictable characteristics. Globalization, Biosecurity, and the Future of Life Sciences examines current trends and future objectives of research in public health, life sciences, and biomedical science that contain applications relevant to developments in biological weapons 5 to 10 years into the future and ways to anticipate, identify, and mitigate these dangers.

There are now new experiences of space and time; new tensions between globalism and regionalism, socialism and consumerism, reality and spectacle; new instabilities of value, meaning and identity - a dialectic between past and future. How are we to understand these? Mapping the Futures is the first of a series which brings together cultural theorists from different disciplines to assess the implications of economic, political and social change for intellectual inquiry and cultural practice.

For many scholars and political activists, “globalization” encompasses a variety of economic, political, cultural, ideological, and environmental practices that have accelerated in the last few decades. Manfred Steger presents globalization in plain, readable English as a multifaceted system encompassing global, regional, and local aspects of social life. In addition to unpacking the term’s various dimensions, he investigates whether globalization is “good” or “bad”: a question hotly debated in classrooms, boardrooms, and on the streets.

In theory, regionalism and globalization are intended to be viewed as two separate concepts. However, as long as the approaches complement each other, considering these paradigms in tandem can have significantly positive effects on the overall status of the world economy. Regional Economy Integration and the Global Financial System addresses recent trends in regional integration projects and the strides that such projects are making on the road toward globalization. Focusing on a range of economic projects, emerging supranational units, and possible implications for future trends, this book is an essential reference source for professionals, scholars, and institutions interested in the dynamic effects of regionalism and globalization.

The world turned upside down? interrogates the widespread claim that contemporary globalization has ended the centrality of the state in world affairs and is effectively irreversible. It offers discriminating definitions of globalization, internationalization and international interdependence and demonstrates the analytical and empirical difficulties generated by these concepts. Developments at the end of the twentieth century are compared with those of earlier eras, particularly the end of the nineteenth and start of the twentieth centuries. The book also surveys the historical role of the state and its enduring importance for human well-being. A central focus of the book is the challenge posed by contemporary developments to the role and capacity of the modern state and the consequences should such challenges prove to be overwhelming.

A map which shows where innovation is clustered worldwide is also a map of the location of the highly skilled and talented labour. New technologies, their creative applications or synergy across different areas of scientific research or technology development always create opportunities for the employment of particularly creative labour. This book explores the kinds of institutions and structures which need to exist to make sure that such skills are both offered and employed in particular 'islands of innovation'. Networking Regionalised Innovative Labour Markets illustrates the theme of how existing concentrations of skills in scientific, technological and managerial elites are reinforced through inter-regional mobility using exemplars from a range of countries and regions. These include the US, UK, Italy, Germany, and Central and Eastern Europe. The book's originality lies in its in-depth assessments of the factors associated with the extent to which some regions hold their positions in networked islands of innovation. It is shown that those islands of innovation that attract highly skilled workers from abroad, particularly those from foreign islands of innovation, perform better for example in the US, Italy and the UK. In contrast, even the most innovative Czech regions tend to lose the highly skilled workers vis-à-vis the most innovative regions of the world, mainly to regions in the USA.
