Contributor(s): �Unay, Sadik | �Senel, Muzaffer.
Material type: TextTextSeries: Focus on civilizations and cultures: Publisher: New York : Nova Science Publishers, c2009Description: 1 online resource (xvii, 367 p.).ISBN: 9781613249574 (electronic bk.); 1613249578 (electronic bk.).Subject(s): Civilization | International economic relations | European Union | World Trade Organization | Globalization | International relations | Globalisierung | Weltwirtschaft | Zivilisation | Internationale Politik | HISTORY / WorldGenre/Form: Electronic books.Additional physical formats: Print version:: Global orders and civilizations.DDC classification: 909 Online resources: EBSCOhost Summary: "The explosion of new themes and working areas in social sciences in the aftermath of the Cold-War stimulated the 'cultural turn' of the previous decades and strengthened the position of the notion of 'civilization' as a unit of analysis and locus of academic debate in the fields of history, philosophy, sociology, political science, and international relations. Given the fabricated and standardized nature of recent literature on political, economic and socio-cultural aspects of globalization, it is crystal clear that historically and philosophically enlightened works written from the perspective of civilizational transformation will provide the much needed sophistication to conventional social science analyses trying to elucidate the organizing principles of the global order. This novel collection represents a path-breaking work in the field of global/civilizational studies by constituting an interdisciplinary and theoretically-informed platform on which complex debates on the political, economic, socio-cultural, philosophical and ecological aspects of the global order could be conducted. The editors, Sadik Unay and Muzaffer Senel, managed to gather a truly original collection of articles from some of the leading authorities and promising academics on the theme of global orders with special reference to a civilization transformation covering a wide spectrum in time and space from Antique Greece to the Islamic World, from Europe to the US and from East Asian history to current globalizations."--Publisher's description.
