        ISBN 9780199286942

      1. Steger, a political theorist who is one of the preeminent writers working on globalization as a political ideology, traces a history of ‘globality’ and global thinking that pre-dates the twentieth century. His significant contribution is to suggest that the global imaginary has a long political tradition, and he points to specific examples (such as the link between ideology and religion) to analyze current developments in the political landscape today. See in particular Chapter 4, Third-World Liberationism and Other Cold War Isms: No End to Ideology and Chapter 5, Market Globalism and Justice Globalism in the Roaring Nineties.
