Editorial Reviews

Review

In the 1970s, long before there was a recognized global analysis, Mittelman was studying specific conflicts around the world through lenses other than those of traditional political science and international relations. Today, when we have a body of scholarship on globalization, Mittelman once again is dong research that cuts beyond established work. There is much to be learned and understood from this book.

Saskia Sassen, Professor Columbia University, and author Territory, Authority, Rights.

For several decades Jim Mittelman has pioneered research into the international political economy of globalization and development. Contesting Global Order assembles, and reassesses, wide-ranging analyses in a richly reflective intellectual autobiography. Bringing the margins to the center of attention, this is unabashed knowledge for empowerment.

Jan Aart Scholte University of Warwick, UK

Mittelman takes us on a fascinating intellectual journey that draws on a wide array of literatures from around the globe. Contesting Global Order demonstrates a commitment to an ethically engaged scholarship that is truly international.

J. Ann Tickner, University of Southern California

The book testifies to the clarity and consistency of Professor Mittleman's thinking on issues of global concern over the last four decades. It offers a clear-eyed scrutiny of emotive and divisive issues in a scholarly and balanced manner.

Taye-Brook Zerihoun, Assistant Secretary-General for Political Affairs, United Nations.

In this insightful collection of previously published essays, one of the leading critics of received wisdom about development, globalization, and liberalization takes stock of contemporary power relationships. Jim Mittelman’s analyses of social and political realities demonstrate persuasively the need to overcome the widespread global resignation to Margaret Thatcher’s TINA (there is no alternative). Specialists need to read this book, and so do students.

Thomas G. Weiss, Presidential Professor of Political Science, The CUNY Graduate Center
