On Order



In this volume some of the world?s leading analysts ofglobalization discuss the economic, political and ethicalimplications of global economic integration. They assess thebenefits and the costs of globalization and suggest strategies forreconciling it with the interests and aspirations of the people inall regions of the world.

The contributors understand globalization not as a uniformprocess that should be praised or condemned in its entirety, but asa complex phenomenon that can and must be shaped and steeredtowards socially desirable goals. They reject the idea that theresults of market processes are inexorable or invariablybeneficial. On the contrary, they call for a robust globalgovernance that is attentive to normative commitments - the commongood, social justice, and democratic accountability - and does notreflect the overwhelming power of a handful of governments andcorporate interests.

Taming Globalization offers a fresh look at amuch-debated topic, and sets out new ideas for curtailing andovercoming the negative aspects of global economic change.Contributors include Robert E. Goodin, David Held, Robert O.Keohane, John Gerard Ruggie, Joseph E. Stiglitz, and Robert HunterWade
