Public Organ Rev 9 1 — Keane J Global civil society? Accessed 5 Sept Foreign Policy Magazine, 10 Mar This timely and engaging study provides a much-needed critical theory of global politics. Rupert and Solomon place the politics of globalization at the center of a wide-ranging analysis of contemporary processes.
Global productive integration, new labor relations and patterns of inequalities, transnational migration, the war on terrorism, and ideological struggles are redefining the traditional field of international political economy. While the authors emphasize the novel, contradictory, and open-ended nature of global power relations and future possible worlds, they do not lose sight of the continued relevance of inter-state politics. The result is a refreshing look at globalization as a process of social change being contested and reconstructed by forces from above and from below.
Brief yet satisfying, Globalization and International Political Economy is well suited for students and scholars as well as for a lay public concerned with understanding the contemporary world. This is a map of command power , the loci of service corporate decisions and from whence consequent instructions flow out across the world. This is the ultimate core process in the world city network and Figure 2 is therefore a depiction of the core of the world-economy as defined by command power, highest-level work in the world city network.
Networks are premised upon collaboration, without a degree of synergy between the elements, networks disintegrate. Thus, for cities to form a network, there must be mutuality between them — city networks have to encompass co-operative mechanisms to operate. Therefore all cities in a network have a basic network power , it is the reason they form part of the network. Like other power categories, network power varies among its holders. Take Hong Kong as an example. It appears in Figure 1 but not Figure 2 but this does not make it an unimportant world city.
It may have no headquarters of global service corporations but it is a place where all serious global service players have to be. Hence Hong Kong has immense network power as the place-to-be for linking the booming Chinese economy to the rest of the world. It is where knowledges about Chinese opportunities criss-cross professional knowledges that convert opportunities into practice. Such cities are traditionally called gateways and I keep this terminology in Figure 3 which depicts the 24 leading gateway cities in the world city network, as defined by numbers of links for non-command cities.watch

Most are national gateways Buenos Aires, Toronto, etc. The three zones of command power represent the core , the gateways represent the semi-periphery part service core, part mega-city peripheral processes , and the rest, the background of the map is the periphery by definition a place with no dynamic cities.
In world-systems analysis, the USA is in hegemonic decline as it uses political-military power to compensate for declining economic power: just as the growth of the British Empire occurred after British economic dominance in the industrial revolution, so we should expect historical figures like Bush to appear, using up American wealth with great political bravado.
However both these arguments treat the USA as an undifferentiated geographical unit — I think a good dose of Jacobsean social science is needed to rectify this.

However, I think a rather different geohistorical idea is much more useful for understanding contemporary US military adventures — sectionalism. US history can be framed through its North-South divide :. Sectional compromise from Constitution to Civil War. The North is a world of makers and traders.

Northern cities were the builders of US hegemony : after the Civil War they made the US the dominant economic power in the world culminating in its immense pre-eminence in the mid-twentieth century. In contrast the South is a world of soldiers and circuses.

Along side the numerous army and navy bases we find the playground of America in music New Orleans jazz, Memphis blues, Nashville country , films Hollywood and vacations Disneyland, Disneyworld, Las Vegas. Wealth historically created in the North is squandered in the South, both domestically play and internationally war and military bases. Figure 4. John F Kennedy in was the last politician from the North to win the presidency. There is another President from the North, Gerald Ford of Michigan, but he only became President when Nixon resigned; in the next election he lost to the Southerner Carter.
The lesson is: Southerners beat Northerners whatever the party labels. By its nature, a public lecture does not have a list of references but readers less familiar with the subject matter may find a brief introduction to some key references useful. Finally, to keep abreast of the latter, reference should be made to the Globalization and World Cities GaWC web-site: www. Loughborough University, P. Taylor lboro.
