Routledge Studies in Emerging Societies

The baton of driving the world economy is passing to emerging economies. This is not just an economic change, but a social change, with migration flows changing direction towards surplus economies; a political change, as in the shift from the G7 to G20; and over time, cultural changes. This also means that the problems of emerging societies will increasingly become world problems. This series addresses the growing importance of BRIC (Brazil Russia India China) and rising societies such as South Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, Indonesia, South Africa, Turkey, the UAE and Mexico. The term 'emerging societies' refers to concerns wider than just emerging markets or emerging powers, taking a kaleidoscopic approach that ranges from political economy, finance, technology and IP to social movements, culture, art and aesthetics. The series focuses on problems generated by emergence such as social inequality, cultural change, media, ethnic and religious strife, ecological constraints, relations with advanced and developing societies, and new regionalism, with a particular interest in addressing debates and social reflexivity in emerging societies.

New Trends in Globalization

Series editors: Jan Nederveen Pieterse and Boike Rehbein

With the onset of the twenty-first century key components of the architecture of twentieth-century globalization have been crumbling. American hegemony has weakened. Laissez-faire capitalism has proved to be crisis-prone and gives way to a plurality of ways of organizing and regulating capitalism. With the rise of emerging societies driving forces of the world economy are shifting not merely geographically but structurally, with industrializing societies, rather than postindustrial consumer societies, again propelling the world economy. These changes involve major breaks: an era of multipolarity; capitalisms in the plural; the emergence of new modernities; and new patterns of East-South and South-South relations. These changes unfold on a global scale and cannot be properly understood on a national, regional or even international basis. They represent major trends breaks, although actual changes may well take shape through a thousand small steps. Understanding these changes requires interdisciplinary and kaleidoscopic approaches that range from global political economy to cultural transformations. The series welcomes contributions to global studies that are innovative in topic, approach or theoretical framework. Amid the fin-de-regime of the millennium, with globalization experiencing dramatic changes, the series will cater to the growing interest in educational and study material on contemporary globalization and its ramifications.
