Globalization on Trial challenges the conventional view that equates globalization with the expansion of the capitalist economic system. With a broad historical and holistic brush, the author presents a view of globalization that is both multidisciplinary and multicultural. What opportunities must we seize? What dangers must we overcome? Rajaee examines human governance and the paradox of globalism and nationalism (or "nativism"), providing a particularly fresh perspective on Islamic civilization. He also focuses on our education system and how it will have to adapt to meet the new challenges.

This timely book examines post-communist developments in Russia, central Europe, and the Balkans, emphasizing foreign and security policies and their domestic linkages. Framed around the concepts of globalization and regime change, the rich set of case studies traces the repercussions for politicians and institutions forced to adjust to the disappearance of the “East” from the cold war’s East-West polarity. The contributors explore how each country has grappled with such questions as how to change from one party to many, how to create viable market economies, and how to restructure security alliances. They conclude by considering the prospects for further regime change from democracies to hybrid systems and the implications for the future of the European Union.

This publication comprises the revised texts of a series of three lectures, the Aggrey-Frazer- Guggisberg Memorial lectures, delivered by the renowned scholar, at the University of Ghana in 2002. The first lecture explores globalisation as the product of religion, technology, economy and empire. It postulates that globalisation can be positive or negative, depending upon the values it is realised. The second lecture raises question such as: Is there such a thing as 'global Africa'? Has the 'black experience' itself been globalised, with Ghana as a major actor in that globalisation? How does this relate to the shadow of terrorism and counter-terrorism? The third lecture focuses on some of the key personalities of Africa's anti-colonial history, examining how Africa has sought to move from the shadows of globalisation, in quest of an empowered and constructive role in the global order.

The role and economic power of corporations that dominate the world economy has generated considerable controversy. The most heated debate and the most critical questions surrounding the role of multinational corporations relate to foreign direct investment (FDI). This key volume offers an entirely fresh perspective of the role of multinationals and the development impact of FDI. Contrary to prevailing opinion, it examines whether imperialism is a much more useful concept for describing and explaining the dynamics of world development than globalization. FDI is a mechanism for empire-centred capital accumulation, a powerful lever for political control and for re-ordering the world economy. This is a much needed analysis of global capitalism and its impact around the world, resulting in an excellent resource for students, academics and activists.

Discusses the role of antisemitism in right-wing extremism, focusing on American neo-Nazis like David Duke. Antisemitism is at the center of the extreme right's critique of the modern world. Among the latest propagandistic themes are anti-globalism, ecology, and anti-Americanism, and the Jews are blamed for all the associated problems. The neo-Nazis have formed an alliance with radical Islamists against the USA and its alleged controller, Israel. They espouse Holocaust denial, as exemplified by Iran's hosting of a conference in 2006 on that topic. The Internet is a very effective propaganda tool for such institutions as the Institute for Historical Review, which has shifted its emphasis from Holocaust denial to the theme of Jewish/Zionist world domination. Radical leftists have also been attracted to the anti-Zionism of Islamists and rightists. Extremist Internet sites have increased from only one in 1995 to 8,500 to date, and they use their mainstream status to increase social acceptability for antisemitism. Advocates using 21st-century tools, like the Internet, to fight 21st-century antisemitism.
