Globalization, Knowledge and Society: Readings from International Sociology

Albrow, Martin
ISBN:
9780803983236

Globalization, Knowledge and Society addresses the issues involved in the development of sociology as a global discipline and the increasing interpenetration of national traditions, cultures and economies through global change. Classic issues of relativism and universalism are raised in a new context. The related problems of tensions between national sociological traditions and the international discipline are explored. Finally the book considers the transnational process of social change, particularly as exemplified in international actors such as the Green and peace movements.
