The Politics and Culture of Globalization: India and Australia

pages: 352
Edition : Hardcover
Volumes : 1
Publisher : Social Science Press
Published : 2009

This brings together Indian and Australian experts in the fields of political science, international relations, philosophy, cultural theory and political economy. Its timeliness and unifying theme derive from comparisons between Indian and Australian perspectives, and analyses by Australian writers on developments in India. Indian-Australian relations are explored in several chapters.

The neo-liberal form of globalisation is a key focus of critique in this volume. Several chapters examine the search for alternative forms of governance as the nation-state undergoes profound change due to global interconnectedness.

Author Bio: Hans Lofgren is Director of the Master of Politics and Policy Program at Deakin University, Australia. He has published extensively on the politics and economics of pharmaceuticals, for example in New Political Science (2007), Australia & New Zealand Health Policy (2007) and Social Science & Medicine (2004).

Prakash Sarangi is Professor of Political Science at the University of Hyderabad. His publications include Liberal Theories of State: Contemporary Perspectives (1996) and Political Exchange and Public Policy: A Cross-National Analysis (1990).

Review 1: An important contribution to the critical discourse on globalisation. It is a unique Indo-Austrlian intellectual endeavour grappling incisively with deeper issues of philosophy and policy in the contemporary world.

Review 2: With its cogent analysis and lucid style, this volume is a valuable addition to critical readings on globalisation... The focus on process - governance, institutions, and area studies - is an added strength... With its analytical depth and empirical stretch, it will be a valuable addition to this important field.

Review 3: It will be a very useful volume for all the graduate students who are trying to understand [the] complex and multi faceted nature of the phenomenon of globalisation.
