      1. In this slim, 140-page volume Steger outlines the economic, political, cultural, and economic dimensions of globalization in individual chapters, providing a concise yet wide-ranging overview of one of the most defining forces of the contemporary world. Instead of only touching on key developments of the last twenty years, Steger explains how the development of globalization has been taking place since the end of WWII, and suggests how the Cold War played a part in its eventual dominance post-1989. See Chapter 2 Globalization and History, Chapter 5 The cultural dimension of globalization, and Chapter 7 Ideologies of globalization: market globalism, justice globalism, jihadist globalism.
