Patricio N. Abinales, Noboru Ishikawa and Akio Tanabe eds, Dislocating Nation-States: Globalization in Asia and Africa
Price: $99.95

As much of the world turns its attention to questions of the role and even survival of the nation-state formation in an increasingly globalized world, the authors of this interdisciplinary volume shift the focus of the debate by examining various sites of social action where the nation-state is still in a formative stage even as it is increasingly under threat. Including micro level ethnographies, local histories and a macro-theoretical overview of the world-system, this volume directly engages with the complexities of globalization in marginal and troubled states complexities that are themselves typically marginalized in debates all too often obsessed with the plight of the most powerful and developed nations.
