Produktbeschreibung
This brilliant new book by one of Europe's leading social thinkers throws light on the global power games being played out between global business, nation states and movements rooted in civil society. Beck offers an illuminating account of the changing nature of power in the global age and assesses the influence of the ever-expanding counter-powers. The author puts forward the provocative thesis that in an age of global crises and risks, a politics of "e;golden handcuffs"e; - the creation of a dense network of transnational interdependencies - is exactly what is needed in order to regain national autonomy, not least in relation to a highly mobile world economy. It is imperative that the maxim of nation-based realpolitik - that national interests have necessarily to be pursued by national means - be replaced by the maxim of cosmopolitan realpolitik. The more cosmopolitan our political structures and activities, Beck suggests, the more successful they will be in promoting national interests, and the greater our individual power in this global age will be.

Rezensionen
"Ulrich Beck is one of the most important social theorists of ourtime. In Power in the Global Age he provides an insightfuland rigorous theoretical framework to analyze the new forms ofpower and counter-power in the global sphere. It shows therelevance of theory for understanding the major political conflictsthat are reshaping our world. It will be mandatory reading inuniversities everywhere."

-- Manuel Castells, University of Southern California, LosAngeles

"In this fascinating new book Ulrich Beck develops further amanifesto of, and for, a cosmopolitan world. Especially importantis his attempt to decipher and characterize the architecture ofcosmopolitan states and civil society. This major book may well dofor 'cosmopolitan society' what Beck's earlier works did fordeciphering the nature of 'risk society'."

-- John Urry, Lancaster University
