Globalization : a very short introduction by Manfred B Steger( Book )

70 editions published between 2003 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 2,139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Manfred B. Steger presents globalization in accessible language as a multifaceted process encompassing global, regional, and local aspects of social life. He explores whether it is a new phenomenon, and if it should be considered a 'good' or 'bad' thing - a question that has been hotly debated in classrooms, boardrooms, and on the streets - especially since the 9/11 terrorist attacks."--Jacket
Globalism : the new market ideology by Manfred B Steger( Book )

9 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 701 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Globalism: the new market ideology rejects the notion that we find ourselves at the end of ideology and that democracy has won. Instead, Steger argues that the opening decade of the 21st century will constitute a teeming battlefield of clashing ideologies. The chief protagonist is the dominant neoliberal market ideology Steger calls globalism. After identifying and evaluating the five central claims of globalism--including assertions that globalization is inevitable, nobody is in charge of globalization, and globalization benefits everyone--Steger offers an overview of the counterclaims made by anti-globalist forces
Neoliberalism : a very short introduction by Manfred B Steger( Book )

18 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In its heyday in the late 1990s, neoliberalism emerged as the world's dominant economic paradigm. But the global financial crisis of 2008-2009 fundamentally shocked a globalized economy built on neoliberal assumptions. This introduction examines the origins, core claims, & considerable variations of neoliberalism
Social capital : critical perspectives on community and "Bowling alone"( Book )

6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 504 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection tackles the theme of isolation and the breakdown of mediating social institutions. It is, in part, a response to Robert Punnam's "Bowling Alone" as well as an attempt to create a broader idea of civil society. The essays contribute to the examination of democratic theory and practice, exploring one of the most popular causes of this decline in public trust - social capital. The essays utilize diverse methodologies - empirical and philosophical - and multiple perspectives to examine critically the social capital discourse and how it is related to political participation, civic engagement and American democracy
Gandhi's dilemma : nonviolent principles and nationalist power by Manfred B Steger( Book )

8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Conceived as a study in the history of political thought, Steger's book examines the origins, meaning, and unfolding of Gandhi's dilemma as it played itself out in both theory and political practice. This discussion is inextricably linked to significant and timely issues that are critical for the study of nationalism, for Gandhi's vision raises the important question of whether it is indeed possible to construct a benign type of nationalism that is rooted in neither physical nor conceptual forms of violence."--Jacket
Globalism : market ideology meets terrorism by Manfred B Steger( Book )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As global challengers moved from peaceful protest to more violent confrontation, the market ideology of the dominant Western perspective transformed into what Steger terms an 'imperial globalism' led by the United States. This text explores this transformation and its impacts around the world
The quest for evolutionary socialism : Eduard Bernstein and social democracy by Manfred B Steger( Book )

17 editions published between 1997 and 2006 in English and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The quest for evolutionary socialism is neither a conventional political history nor a traditional "historiography of political ideas," but is an examination of past and present interactions between European social democratic politics and socialist political ideas. Since no study of Bernstein's life and work has appeared since Peter Gay's 1952 study, The dilemma of democratic socialism, Steger's book is a timely response to the need for a new comprehensive biography of the German "Father of Marxist Revisionalism," as it not only incorporates recent academic developments, but also addresses current debates on the "end of socialism," as a result of the collapse of Marxism-Leninism, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the chronic ailments of European social democracy."--BOOK JACKET
Violence and its alternatives : an interdisciplinary reader( Book )

17 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Violence and Its Alternatives fills the existing gap in the literature on violence with a collection of essays from the most influential writers in the fields of politics, psychology, sociology, gender studies, and race studies. Methodologically diverse and intellectually wide-ranging, it appeals to specialists, students, and the interested general reader. This collection has two features not found in any other discussions of violence: first, a full spectrum of views ranging across disciplines, from now-classic treatments of the subject by philosophers such as Hannah Arendt and Frantz Fanon to postmodern considerations of violence embedded in social structures from the likes of Michel Foucault and Jacques Derrida; and second, the first interdisciplinary study of nonviolence, a thoughtful and serious look at the alternatives to violence from spiritual leaders such as Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr."--Jacket
Rethinking globalism( Book )

8 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 321 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is the hottest American export since 9/11? The contributors to this provocative volume contend that it is Western style globalism-the dominant free market ideology that determines everything from most favored nation status to the declaration of war. In this much-needed post September 11th analysis, an interdisciplinary author team shows how central concepts like globalization, liberty, free markets, and free trade are increasingly being subordinated to and lumped together with the war on terrorism led by the U.S. and its allies
Engels after Marx( Book )

14 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Globalisms : the great ideological struggle of the twenty-first century by Manfred B Steger( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new edition of Manfred Steger's award-winning book explores the three principal ideologies of our time: the neoliberal "market: globalism," the "justice globalism" of the global justice movement, and the "jihadist globalism" of radical Islamists, Steger, one of the world's leading scholars on these subjects, explores globalization's central questions: What, exactly, are the core claims of these conflicting globalisms? What are the most likely future trajectories of this great ideological struggle of the twenty-first century? Written with historical and theoretical breadth, this work is essential reading for all those concerned with the key questions that our shrinking world must face."--Jacket
Judging nonviolence : the dispute between realists and idealists by Manfred B Steger( Book )

Grassroots Zen by Manfred B Steger( Book )

16 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many Zen Buddhist practitioners have come to question some of Japanese Zen's less democratic aspects-from the strict, male-dominated hierarchies to the racial overtones. At the same time, modern American Buddhists often find it difficult to integrate zazen (seated Zen meditation) with lives of family, work, and social engagement. This book offers a fascinating guide to overcoming both these dilemmas. A study of how one Zen group returned to an ancient Chinese tradition of community meditation practice without a leader or hierarchy, this book also outlines an authentic, ""grassroots"" approach
Justice globalism : ideology, crises, policy by Manfred B Steger( Book )

17 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Are political activists connected to the global justice movement simplistically opposed to neoliberal globalization? Is their political vision 'incoherent' and their policy proposals 'naive' and 'superficial' as is often claimed by the mainstream media? Drawing on dozens of interviews and rich textual analyses involving nearly fifty global justice organizations linked to the World Social Forum, the authors of this pioneering study challenge this prevailing view. They present a compelling case that the global justice movement has actually fashioned a new political ideology with global reach: 'justice globalism'. Far from being incoherent, justice globalism possesses a rich and nuanced set of core concepts and powerful ideological claims. The book investigates how justice globalists respond to global financial crises, to escalating climate change, and to the global food crisis. It finds justice globalism generating new political agendas and campaigns to address these pressing problems. Justice globalism, the book concludes, has much to contribute to solving the serious global challenges of the 21st century. Justice Globalism will prove a stimulating read for undergraduate and graduate students in the social sciences and humanities who are taking courses on globalization, global studies and global justice
