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

19 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 1,494 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first, "Assembling the National," traces the emergence of territoriality in the Middle Ages and considers monarchical divinity as a precursor to sovereign secular authority. The second part, "Disassembling the National," analyzes economic, legal, technological, and political conditions and projects that are shaping new organizing logics. The third part, "Assemblages of a Global Digital Age," examines particular intersections of the new digital technologies with territory, authority, and rights. Sweeping in scope, rich in detail, and highly readable, "Territory, Authority, Rights" is a definitive new statement on globalization that will resonate throughout the social sciences
Digital formations : IT and new architectures in the global realm by Robert Latham( )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,448 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 cy
Expulsions : brutality and complexity in the global economy by Saskia Sassen( )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2018 in English and held by 1,311 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
Losing control? : sovereignty in an age of globalization by Saskia Sassen( )

5 editions published between 1996 and 2015 in English and held by 833 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The past decade has seen great changes in the way business is transacted across national borders. Because of unprecedented advances in telecommunication and computer networks, money is transferred in electronic space. U.S. firms such as Ford, IBM, and Exxon now employ well over fifty percent of their workers overseas, rankling both domestic workers who argue that jobs are being exported while unemployment soars at home and activists who contend that wealthy corporations are exploiting low-wage workers in Third World nations. And as immigration levels soar, the very concept of citizenship
Global networks, linked cities by Saskia Sassen( )

5 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in English and held by 785 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Du site de l'éditeur: 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 globalising zones are not only replicating many features of the top tier of global cities, but are also generating new socio-economic patterns as well. These new patterns of development promise to lead to significant changes in the structure of the global economy, as more and more cities worldwide are integrated into globalization's circuitry. Includes contributions from: Linda Garcia, Patrice Riemens, Geert Lovink, Peter Taylor, David Smith, Michael Timberlake, Stephen Graham, Sueli Schiffer Ramos, Christoff Parnreiter, Felicity Gu, David Meyer, Pablo Ciccolella, Iliana Mignaqui, Eric Huybrechts, and Ali Parsa

10 editions published between 1987 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Deciphering the global : its scales, spaces and subjects by Saskia Sassen( )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 56 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

Sociology of globalization by Saskia Sassen( Book )

7 editions published between 2006 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 44 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

Migranten, Siedler, Flüchtlinge : von der Massenauswanderung zur Festung Europa by Saskia Sassen( Book )

7 editions published between 1996 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Saskia Sassen beschreibt die Erfahrungen der Migranten ebenso wie die wirtschaftlichen, gesellschaftlichen und politischen Bedingungen und Folgen der Migration. Mit ihrer Geschichte der "Fremden" in Europa zeichnet sie ein ungewohntes Bild: Migration als Chance statt Bedrohung. Zugleich plädiert sie für eine aktuelle Einwanderungs- und Flüchtlingspolitik, die sich an historischen Erfahrungen orientiert. (Quelle: Katalog SBE)

Globalizzati e scontenti by Saskia Sassen( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in Italian and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quali sono i presupposti storici e geografici del fenomeno della globalizzazione? Quali le implicazioni economiche e politiche trasnazionali per la gestione del futuro pianeta?

A questi e a numerosi altri quesiti fondamentali sulla globalizzazione Saskia Sassen dà risposta in questa raccolta di suoi saggi, che tratteggiano aspetti sociologici, politici ed economici del mondo contemporaneo
Brexitannia : a film in two parts( Visual )

4 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary, the first about Brexit, chronicles the aftermath of the historic referendum that initiated the United Kingdom's secession from the European Union, and explores the zeitgeist of a nation swept by populism and the perceived threats of globalization, technocratic control, and immigration. With commentary by Noam Chomsky, Saskia Sassen, Guy Standing, as well as interviews with the voters themselves, this film constructs an expose of the critical trend of separation, and the many conflicts that resurfaced at alarming pace surrounding the referendum. The rise of nationalism, anti-elite sentiments, and identity politics cast a dominant shadow over the impending unraveling of the technocratic union. The film reflects on how previous ideologies shifted into dichotomies of class warfare. It explores the stories of individuals who motivated the historic and perplexing vote, a vote that speaks volumes about waning empires and the shrinking power of labor in an increasingly automated global economy. Brexitannia is a portrait of a democracy in a state of panic
