baby's first vlog

sorry if i sound funny, i've been bingeing the magnus archives and also not speaking english to anyone else but some discord friends in the past few days so i'm picking up a few weird quirks. it's very cringe but i've caught myself slipping into doing bad british impressions. also i just want you to know. that. i was on the introduction. it was a 9 page introduction and it left me terribly confused and i hate everything so much right now. anyways you can leave a comment on youtube/my friends page/my neocities profile or you can hunt down bryan s. turner and robert j. holton and tell them to go to hell for me i dont really care.

edit: i've decided that this is not enough for you to understand my pain. i'll be transcribing the exact text from this shitty pdf below so that you know my pain.

theories of globalization - issues and origins | bryan s turner and robert j holton

introduction: precursors, paradigms and problems

The theme of globalization has in the last three decades become the key topic of the social sciences. This outcome is even more true of the give years since the first edition of this Handbook was published. The continuing rise of China as a world power, the further globalization of terror and crises of economic globalization all play out across borders influencing every aspect of human life in every corner of the planet. Nevertheless globalization is probably more feared than understood. Unsurprisingly there are now a large number of major handbooks, companions and textbooks on the subject such as Frank Lechner and John Boli's The Globalization Reader (2004), Jan Nederveen Pieterse's Global Future(2000), George Ritzer's The Blackwell Companion to Globalization(2007), Saskia Sassen's Sociology of Globalization (2007), Bryan Turner and Habibul Khondker's Globalization East and West (2010), Robert J. Holton's Globalization and the Nation-State (2011), Barry Axford's Theories of Globalization (2013) and Martin Albrow's Global Age Essays on Social and Cultural Change (2014). In addition, there has been much sociological interest in both the social instability caused by globalization in, for example, Ulrich Beck's World Risk Society (1999) and the radical uncertainties associated with financial crisis in Robert J. Holton's Global Finance (2012).

This Handbook of Globalization Studies, however, has a somewhat different focus, being not only an analysis of globalization as such, but also an overview and critical assessment of globalization as a field of study within the social sciences. The aim therefore is to provide an assessment of the analysis of globalization processes in political science, demography, cultural studies, film studies, sociology, and so forth. As such this Handbook examines fields of considerable, multi-disciplinary interest, such as global population movements and global migration, information technology, and social inequality, as well as new areas of enquiry such as the complexity of international taxation, the rise of global Islamophobia and the various cultures of sexual life in Asia. It also attempts to take a balanced view of both the negative dimensions - global crime and environmental pollution - and the positive side - the spread of human rights and international law - of contemporary globalization.
