An analysis of the hidden impact of globalization, which claims that the attacks of 9/11 show that globalization can be a force for violence and conflict as much as for prosperity and cultural cohesion. Texts explore key issues such as: the impact of the perpetual state of global war on terror, the altered role of nation-states in these conflicts, terrorism, anti-globalization movements, the privatization of western military forces and role of security companies in urban warfare, etc. See in particular William Smith and Robert Fine Cosmopolitanism and military intervention and Sharon Pickering The globalization of violence against refugees.
