Summary: Part One examines the social state, neoliberal, catalytic state, and democratic cosmopolitan models of globalization. Each necessarily tends to function in a manner contradicting essential claims made by its leading advocates. This "immanent contradiction" provides a theoretical warrant for moving to a new position, addressing the shortcomings of the previous framework. The first three chapters of Part Two are devoted to a Marxian model of (capitalist) globalization, in which the irresolvable contradictions and social antagonisms of the capitalist global order are explicitly recognized. The final chapter is devoted to a Marxian model of (socialist) globalization, in which those contradictions and antagonism are overcome, bringing the systematic dialectic of globalization to a close.
