Global Civil Society?
John Keane

Amid fears of terrorism, rising tides of xenophobia, and protests, John

Keane explores the contradictory arguments and traces the historical origins, contemporary meanings and political potential of globalization. Defending the idea of a global civil society, Keane stresses the need for new democratic ways of living and demonstrates how it is linked with such developments as turbocapitalism, social movements and the political institutions of "cosmocracy." Keane's provocative reflections draw upon a variety of scholarly sources and offer a fresh perspective on contemporary political thinking and new global problems.
