Globalization in the Twenty-First Century explores the degrees of convergence and/or divergence attributed to the process of globalization. Theoretical contributions to the globalization debate within International Political Economy are empirically evaluated, covering different geographical parts of the world (Central and Eastern Europe, Latin America, Malaysia and South Africa), as well as particular issues of growing relevance (such as the genome project). The contributions are organised according to the three levels of analysis common in the social sciences.
