This text provides the reader with a transdisciplinary, global studies perspective of the political significance of globalization as articulated in today'¬"s three main globalisms: market globalism; justice globalism; and religious globalism. Globalization and Ideology: A Global Studies Perspectivebrings together subjective and objective aspects of globalization that are usually treated separately from each other. Focusing on the transformation of the contemporary ideological landscape, the book is divided into three parts containing an original preface and nine chapters. Collectively, the chapters respond to a broad range of questions, including: '¬¢ How are political ideologies and social imaginaries being transformed in the global age? '¬¢ What sorts of ideological claims are being generated by the three main globalisms? '¬¢ How do these political ideas play out in concrete social, political, and cultural contexts? '¬¢ How do globalisms shape urban spaces and popular images, and how, in turn, are they shaped by global ideologies? '¬¢ How are traditional academic disciplines like political theory responding to global flows of ideas and theories that cut across conventional scholarly boundaries? '¬¢ What does the fledgling field of global studies contribute to new forms of knowledge on these subjects? '¬¢ What is the relationship between globalizing ideologies and post-9/11 '¬ÜAmerican Empire'¬"? '¬¢ Why has there been a surge of religious globalisms such as jihadist Islamism, Christian global fundamentalism, Falun Gong syncretism, and Buddhism? '¬¢ Is the World Social Forum an effective site of ideological counter-production, capable of generating appealing political visions of '¬Üanother world'¬" opposed to market globalisms? '¬¢ Has the lingering Great Recession halted the worldwide ascent of neoliberalism or will it regain its former glory? '¬¢ Rather than reaching the '¬Üend of ideology'¬", are we entering a new era of (global) ideological struggle?
