"We might wonder whether anything new remains to be said on globalization. Reading Rüdiger Safranski's account of the issue, it becomes immediately obvious, maybe surprisingly, that the answer can be highly affirmative."
Peter Wagner, European University Institute and University of Warwick
- In this new book, Rüdiger Safranski considers our current preoccupation with global developments and threats - catastrophic climate changes, jet-setting, high-tech communications and the perfect 'big brother' state, international security and terrorism.
- How Much Globalization Can We Bear? offers an engaging and illustrative analysis of the conceptual move from a globalization of endless promise to a globalization which imprisons the individual.
- The book will be a compelling contribution to the literature on globalization.
- Will be of interest to the general reader and to students of Globalization, Politics and Sociology.
