This carefully curated selection of provocative and accessible essays helps us come to grips with the dark underside of the global economy, and sheds new light on what we can and should do about it. (Peter Andreas, Professor of Political Science and International Studies, Watson Institute for International Studies, Brown University)
Deviant Globalization shows the dark side of global trade, the illicit flows, black markets, and trafficking in drugs and human bodies that are as much a part of the new world (dis)order as multinational corporations and instant financial transfers. Contributors push us towards a more complete moral and political assessment of globalization and the development of better theories to account for power relations, inequalities, and collateral damage. (Craig Calhoun, President, Social Science Research Council)
In the shadows of the move to a globalized economy, in places its uncritical partisans would rather not look, an equally new and equally globalized set of phenomena has arisen. In this pathbreaking book, Nils Gilman, Jesse Goldhammer, and Steven Weber have gone far beyond registering the existence of 'deviant globalization.' They have theorized it, and shown that what crops up at the intersection of ethical disparity and regulatory inefficiency is now a permanent feature of global affairs. Observers of the world will benefit from this insight, while teachers and students will gratefully thank the editors for compiling the evidence in one place. (Samuel Moyn, Columbia University, author of The Last Utopia: Human Rights in History)
