Territory, authority, rights : from medieval to global assemblages by Saskia Sassen( )

44 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 2,560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Where does the nation-state end and globalization begin? In Territory, Authority, Rights, one of the world's leading authorities on globalization shows show the national state made today's global era possible. Saskia Sassen argues that even while globalization is best understood as "denationalization" it continues to be shaped channeled, and enabled by institutions and networks originally developed with nations in mind, such as the rule of law and respect for private authority."--Jacket
The global city : New York, London, Tokyo by Saskia Sassen( Book )

52 editions published between 1991 and 2013 in English and Italian and held by 2,424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a revised edition of the classic work that chronicles how New York, London, and Tokyo became command centers of the global economy and in the process underwent massive and parallel changes. Saskia Sassen has updated all the data in the book and thoroughly rewritten all of the chapters to engage with debates sparked by the first edition and reflect the trends in globalization that have occurred since the book came out in 1991. She has also added a new preface and a substantial new epilogue. This is a timely edition of a work that changed the way we think about cities in the global economy."--Jacket
Digital formations : IT and new architectures in the global realm by Robert Latham( )

22 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and Italian and held by 2,034 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Computer-centered networks and technologies are reshaping social relations and constituting new social domains on a global scale, from virtually borderless electronic markets and Internet-based large-scale conversations to worldwide open source software development communities, transnational corporate production systems, and the global knowledge-arenas associated with NGO networks. This book explores how such ""digital formations"" emerge from the ever-changing intersection of computer-centered technologies and the broad range of social contexts that underlie much of what happens in cybersp
Losing control? : sovereignty in an age of globalization by Saskia Sassen( )

30 editions published between 1996 and 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 1,876 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examining the rise of private transnational legal codes and supranational institutions such as the World Trade Organization and universal human rights covenants, Sassen argues that sovereignty remains an important feature of the international system, but that it is no longer confined tot he nation-state. Sassen posits that a profound transformation is taking place, a partial de-nationalizing of national territory evidenced in agreements such as NAFTA and the European Union
Cities in a world economy by Saskia Sassen( Book )

74 editions published between 1994 and 2019 in 4 languages and held by 1,786 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cities in a World Economy presents sociologists with a new perspective on the study of urban sociology. The decentralization and privatization of the world's economies has radically altered such things as the organization of labor, the structure of consumption, and the distribution of earnings in ways that have yet to be fully realized. In a world economy that is truly more global than it has ever been, Sassen addresses the need to account for the global economies increasing influence on the social structures of cities
Expulsions : brutality and complexity in the global economy by Saskia Sassen( )

27 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 1,754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Soaring income inequality and unemployment, expanding populations of the displaced and imprisoned, accelerating destruction of land and water bodies: today's socioeconomic and environmental dislocations cannot be fully understood in the usual terms of poverty and injustice, according to Saskia Sassen. They are more accurately understood as a type of expulsion -- from professional livelihood, from living space, even from the very biosphere that makes life possible. This hard-headed critique updates our understanding of economics for the twenty-first century, exposing a system with devastating consequences even for those who think they are not vulnerable. From finance to mining, the complex types of knowledge and technology we have come to admire are used too often in ways that produce elementary brutalities. These have evolved into predatory formations -- assemblages of knowledge, interests, and outcomes that go beyond a firm's or an individual's or a government's project. Sassen draws surprising connections to illuminate the systemic logic of these expulsions. The sophisticated knowledge that created today's financial "instruments" is paralleled by the engineering expertise that enables exploitation of the environment, and by the legal expertise that allows the world's have-nations to acquire vast stretches of territory from the have-nots. Expulsions lays bare the extent to which the sheer complexity of the global economy makes it hard to trace lines of responsibility for the displacements, evictions, and eradications it produces -- and equally hard for those who benefit from the system to feel responsible for its depredations
Global networks, linked cities by Saskia Sassen( )

17 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in English and held by 1,576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In her pioneering book The Global City, Saskia Sassen argued that certain cities in the post-industrial world have become central nodes in the new service economy, strategic sites for the acceleration of capital and information flows as well as spaces of increasing socio-economic polarization. One effect has been that such cities have gained in importance and power relative to nation-states. In this new collection of essays, Sassen and a distinguished group of contributors expand on the author's earlier work in a number of important ways, focusing on two key issues. First, they look at how information flows have bound global cities together in networks, creating a global city web whose constituent cities become "global" through the networks they participate in. Second, they investigate emerging global cities in the developing world - Sao Paulo, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Mexico City, Beirut, the Dubai - Iran corridor, and Buenos Aires. They show how these globalizing zones are not only replicating many features of the top tier of global cities, but are also generating new socio-economic patterns as well

50 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 734 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this empirical study, Saskia Sassen offers a fresh understanding of the processes of international migration.

Sociology of globalization by Saskia Sassen( Book )

23 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in 7 languages and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In her groundbreaking book, sociologist Saskia Sassen identifies two sets of processes that make up globalization. One is the set of global institutions, such as the World Trade Organization, global financial markets, the War Crimes Tribunals and the new global cosmopolitanism. However, there is a second set of processes, frequently ignored by most social scientists, that occur on the national and local level. These processes can include state monetary and fiscal policy, networks of activists engaged in local struggles that have an explicit or implicit global agenda, and local and national politics that are unknowingly part of global networks containing similar localized efforts. Sassen's new book focuses on the importance of place, scale and the meaning of the national to study globalization. By emphasizing the interplay between the global and the local, A Sociology of Globalization introduces readers to new forms and conditions such as global cities, transnational communities and commodity chains that are increasingly common. Sassen's expanded approach to globalization offers new interpretive and analytic tools to understand the complex ideas of global interdependence
Guests and aliens by Saskia Sassen( Book )

22 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in 3 languages and held by 590 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A comprehensive analysis of the modern-day movement of refugees reveals the normalcy of cross-border migration in search of work and the contemporary developments, such as the mass dislocations during World War II, that have helped shaped the refugee concept at the end of the century
Deciphering the global : its scales, spaces and subjects by Saskia Sassen( Book )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Breaking with prevailing scholarship, Deciphering the Global relocates the terms of debate surrounding globalization from the heights of global markets, states, and international corporations to the messier, more complex ground of the local, where broad globalizing trends are negotiated in interesting and often unexpected ways. Each of the essays in Saskia Sassen's collection introduces a new type of complexity and ambiguity to the study of the global, confronting questions of space and the fact that both the local and the global are increasingly multi-scalar. In turn, the chapters in this book expand the analytical terrain of the global, demanding new methodologies and interpretive frames for the study of globalization. Employing ethnographies from the United States to continental Europe, Asia, and South America, Deciphering the Global exemplifies the next wave of globalization studies and lays the groundwork for a new school in the study of the global
Migranten, Siedler, Flüchtlinge von der Massenauswanderung zur Festung Europa by Saskia Sassen( Book )

31 editions published between 1996 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les migrations européennes du 19e siècle pour le travail, qui sont aujourd'hui presque oubliées, sont en fait un élément constitutif de l'histoire de l'industrialisation de l'Europe. Sans elles, l'Europe n'aurait pas son visage moderne. Mais les courants ramifiés de réfugiés du 20e siècle ont aussi créé le continent. Ils sont liés à la formation du système étatique européen.Avec cette histoire des "étrangers" en Europe, Saskia Sassen montre un tableau inhabituel : la migration comme une chance et non comme une menace. En même temps, elle plaide pour une politique d'asile et d'immigration qui profite des expériences historiques
Sarah Sze : infinite line by Sarah Sze( Book )

Cities at war : global insecurity and urban resistance by Mary Kaldor( )

7 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Warfare in the twenty-first century goes well beyond conventional armies and nation-states. In a world of diffuse conflicts taking place across sprawling cities, war has become fragmented and uneven to match its settings. Yet the analysis of failed states, civil war, and state building rarely considers the city, rather than the country, as the terrain of battle. In Cities at War, Mary Kaldor and Saskia Sassen assemble an international team of scholars to examine cities as sites of contemporary warfare and insecurity. Reflecting Kaldor's expertise on security cultures and Sassen's perspective on cities and their geographies, they develop new insight into how cities and their residents encounter instability and conflict, as well as the ways in which urban forms provide possibilities for countering violence. Through a series of case studies of cities including Baghdad, Bogotá, Ciudad Juarez, Kabul, and Karachi, the book reveals the unequal distribution of insecurity as well as how urban capabilities might offer resistance and hope. Through analyses of how contemporary forms of identity, inequality, and segregation interact with the built environment, Cities at War explains why and how political violence has become increasingly urbanized. It also points toward the capacity of the city to shape a different kind of urban subjectivity that can serve as a foundation for a more peaceful and equitable future"--

Una sociología de la globalización by Saskia Sassen( )

15 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Procesos transnacionales como la globalización política, económica y cultural enfrentan a las ciencias sociales con una serie de desafíos teóricos y metodológicos, que surgen debido a que lo global (ya sea una institución, un proceso, una práctica discursiva o un imaginario) trasciende el marco exclusivo del Estado-nación y al mismo tiempo habita parcialmente los territorios y las instituciones nacionales. Es así que aun cuando la mayoría de los procesos y las entidades que se encuentran en el interior de lo nacional son nacionales, cada vez resulta más necesaria la investigación empírica para determinar si todos ellos lo son, pues cada vez existen más casos de localización de lo global y de desnacionalización de lo nacional. Vista de esta manera, la globalización no se limita ya a la noción convencional que la define como un proceso de formación de instituciones exclusivamente globales y de interdependencia creciente entre los estados-nación del mundo. En efecto, si lo global reside en parte en el interior de lo nacional, resulta evidente que la globalización, en sus distintas modalidades, compromete de manera directa dos supuestos. El primero de ellos es la concepción implícita o explícita del Estado-nación como contenedor de los procesos sociales. El segundo es la correspondencia implícita entre el territorio nacional y lo nacional como característica, es decir, la idea de que si un fenómeno se da en una institución o en un territorio nacional, entonces debe ser de carácter nacional. En el marco de ese horizonte de reflexión, esta obra de Saskia Sassen aborda el análisis de dos dinámicas diferenciadas. Por un lado, la formación de procesos e instituciones explícitamente globales. Por otro lado, los procesos que no pertenecen necesariamente a la escala global y que, sin embargo, forman parte de la globalización porque, aun inmersos en territorios y dominios institucionales que en gran parte del mundo se consideran nacionales, incorporan redes o entidades transfronterizas que conectan múltiples procesos y actores locales o "nacionales"
