Risk society : towards a new modernity by Ulrich Beck( Book )

115 editions published between 1986 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,721 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Underpinning the analysis is the notion of the 'risk society'. The changing nature of society's relation to production and distribution is related to the environmental impact as a totalizing, globalizing economy based on scientific and technical knowledge becomes more central to social organization and social conflict."--Publisher's description
What is globalization? by Ulrich Beck( Book )

110 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in 20 languages and held by 1,177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new book offers an engaging and challenging introduction to the thorny paths of the globalization debate. Beck aims to clarify the ambiguities of the debate, to distinguish between the various types of globalization and to warn the reader of conceptual traps. Most importantly, however, he opens up the horizon for political responses to globalization." "Beck focuses on two main questions: what does globalization mean? and how can it be moulded politically?" "This book will be an important text for students and scholars in politics, sociology, geography and the social sciences generally. It will also appeal to a broader audience interested in key social and political issues in the world today."--Jacket

47 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 900 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Power in the global age : a new global political economy by Ulrich Beck( Book )

44 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 737 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new book throws light on the global power games being played out between global business, nation-states and movements rooted in civil society. Ulrich Beck offers an account of the changing nature of power in the global age and assesses the influence of the ever-expanding counter-powers." "The author puts forward the provocative thesis that, in an age of global crises and risks, a politics of 'golden handcuffs' - the creation of a dense network of transnational interdependencies - is exactly what is needed in order to regain national autonomy, not least in relation to a highly mobile world economy. It is imperative that the maxim of nation-based realpolitik - that national interests have necessarily to be pursued by national means - be replaced by the maxim of cosmopolitan realpolitik. The more cosmopolitan our political structures and activities. Beck suggests, the more successful they will be in promoting national interests, and the greater our individual power in this global age will be."--Jacket

61 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

53 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in 11 languages and held by 571 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work completes Beck's trilogy on 'cosmopolitan realism'.

World risk society by Ulrich Beck( Book )

42 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book by one of Europe's leading social and political theorists draws together key essays which argue that a new frame of reference is needed to understand the world risk society in which we live today. Beck focuses on ecological and technological questions of risk, and their sociological and political implications. In doing so, he discusses and answers some of the criticisms provoked by his earlier and much cited work on risk society." "This book is an important text for students and scholars in sociology and politics. It will also be read by a broader audience interested in the key social and political questions of our time."--Jacket

The risk society and beyond : critical issues for social theory by Barbara Adam( Book )

16 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ulrich Beck's Risk Society established risk on the sociological agenda. It brought together a wide range of issues centring on environmental, health and personal risk. It provided a rallying ground for researchers and activists in a variety of social movements and became a reference point for state and local policies in risk management." "The Risk Society and Beyond charts the progress of Beck's ideas, traces their evolution and demonstrates why the issues raised by Beck reverberate throughout social theory." "Covering new risks that Beck did not foresee, associated with the emergence of new technologies, genetic and cybernetic, The Risk Society and Beyond is unique because it offers the reader both an introduction to the main arguments in Risk Society and develops a range of critical discussions of aspects of this and other works by Beck. This book also includes a reply to his critics from Beck himself."--Jacket
The cosmopolitan vision by Ulrich Beck( Book )

21 editions published between 2004 and 2014 in English and held by 323 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this new book, Ulrich Beck develops his now widely used concepts of second modernity, risk society and reflexive sociology into a radical new sociological analysis of the cosmopolitan implications of globalization. Beck draws extensively on empirical and theoretical analyses of such phenomena as migration, war and terror, as well as a range of literary and historical works, to weave a rich discursive web in which analytical, critical and methodological themes intertwine effortlessly. Contrasting a 'cosmopolitan vision' or 'outlook' sharpened by awareness of the transformative and transgressive impacts of globalization with the 'national outlook' neurotically fixated on the familiar reference points of a world of nations-states-borders, sovereignty, exclusive identities-Beck shows how even opponents of globalization and cosmopolitanism are trapped by the logic of reflexive modernization into promoting the very processes they are opposing. A persistent theme running through the book is the attempt to recover an authentically European tradition of cosmopolitan openness to otherness and tolerance of difference. What Europe needs, Beck argues, is the courage to unite forms of life which have grown out of language, skin colour, nationality or religion with awareness that, in a radically insecure world, all are equal and everyone is different."--Book cover

Distant love : personal life in the global age by Ulrich Beck( Book )

17 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In their new book, Ulrich Beck and Elisabeth Beck-Gernsheim investigate all types of long-distance relationships, marriages and families that stretch across countries, continents and cultures. These long-distance relationships comprise so many different forms of what they call 'world families', by which they mean love and intimate relationships between individuals living in, or coming from, different countries or continents. In all their various forms these world families share one feature in common: they are the focal point in which different aspects of the globalized world become embodied in the personal lives of individuals. Whether they like it or not, lovers and relatives in these families find themselves confronting the world in the inner space of their own lives. The conflicts between the developed and developing worlds come to the surface in world families - they acquire faces and names, creating confusion, surprise, anger, joy, pleasure and pain at the heart of everyday life. -- Provided by publisher

12 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twenty observations on a world in turmoil by Ulrich Beck( Book )

17 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 242 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The world is a state of turmoil. From the financial crisis to the chaos in the eurozone, from the Arab uprisings to protests in Athens, Barcelona, New York and elsewhere, many of the familiar frameworks are collapsing and we have to find new ways to orient ourselves in a world undergoing rapid change
German Europe by Ulrich Beck( Book )

19 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The new grammar of power reflects the difference between creditor and debtor countries; it is not a military but an economic logic. Its ideological foundation is 'German euro nationalism' - that is, an extended European version of the Deutschmark nationalism that underpinned German identity after the Second World War. In this way the German model of stability is being surreptitiously elevated into the guiding idea for Europe
