Globalization: A Very Short Introduction
Manfred Steger

Oxford University Press, 2009

Globalization has become one of the defining buzzwords of our time--a term that describes a variety of complex economic, political, cultural, ideological, and environmental forces that are rapidly altering our experience of the world.

Globalism: The New Market Ideology
Manfred B. Steger

Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2001

Globalism: The New Market Ideology rejects the notion that we find ourselves at the end of ideology and that democracy has won. Instead, Steger argues that the opening decade of the 21st century will constitute a teeming battlefield of clashing ideologies. The chief protagonist is the dominant neoliberal market ideology Steger calls "globalism." Although globalism constitutes little more than a gigantic repackaging of old laissez-faire ideas, ...

Globalisms: The Great Ideological Struggle of the Twenty-first Century (Globalization)
Manfred B. Steger

Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2008

This new edition of Manfred Steger's award-winning book explores the three principal ideologies of our time: the dominant "market globalism" based on a neoliberal vision of the world as a single marketplace, the "justice globalism" developed over the last decade by a transnational coalition of global civil society forces, and the "jihadist globalism" of radical Islamists seeking to galvanize their global community of believers into violent ...
  
  











  



  
Globalization: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)

Zen Radicals, Rebels, and Reformers
Perle Besserman, Manfred B. Steger

The revolutionary figures in this book are those innovative, non-conformist masters--Zen "madmen"--whose unorthodox behavior has helped define the radical countercultural movement known simply as Zen. In Zen Radicals, Rebels, and Reformers you'll meet Zen boat-rockers that span from early eighth-century China all the way to the bustling streets of modern-day America with a stop in the middle to visit a courageous Zen master who made the ...
  
  











  



  
Globalization and Culture (The Globalization of the World Economy series)
Manfred B. Steger

Edward Elgar Pub, 2012

Globalization has been the subject of fierce academic and public debates over the past two decades, but the focus has tended to revolve around 'objective' aspects linked to economics and technology.

Rethinking Globalism (Globalization)

Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2003

What is the hottest American export since 9/11?

Gandhi's Dilemma: Nonviolent Principles and Nationalist Power
Manfred B. Steger

Palgrave Macmillan, 2000

Throughout his long career as a political thinker and activist, Mahatma Gandhi encountered the dilemma of either remaining faithful to his nonviolent principles and risking the failure of the Indian nationalist movement, or focusing on the seizure of political power at the expense of his moral message.

Grassroots Zen
Perle Besserman, Manfred Steger

Tuttle Publishing, 2001

Many Zen Buddhist practitioners have come to question some of Japanese Zen's less democratic aspects-from the strict, male-dominated hierarchies to the racial overtones. At the same time, modern American Buddhists often find it difficult to integrate zazen (seated Zen meditation) with lives of family, work, and social engagement. This book offers a fascinating guide to overcoming both these dilemmas. A study of how one Zen group returned to an ...
