Samenvatting

This brilliant new book by one of Europe's leading social thinkers develops a far-reaching analysis of the social, economic and political transformations of the modern age. For centuries the nation-state has provided the principal framework of power in the modern world and the basis of legitimate domination, but today this is changing. How should we conceptualize a world and a set of global dynamics in which the nation-state order is being increasingly undermined?

Recensie(s)

Ulrich Beck is one of the most important social theorists of our time. In Power in the Global Age he provides an insightful and rigorous theoretical framework to analyze the new forms of power and counter-power in the global sphere. It shows the relevance of theory for understanding the major political conflicts that are reshaping our world. It will be mandatory reading in universities everywhere. -- Manuel Castells, University of Southern California, Los Angeles In this fascinating new book Ulrich Beck develops further a manifesto of, and for, a cosmopolitan world. Especially important is his attempt to decipher and characterize the architecture of cosmopolitan states and civil society. This major book may well do for 'cosmopolitan society' what Beck's earlier works did for deciphering the nature of 'risk society'. -- John Urry, Lancaster University
