This volume is an important contribution to the empirical
research on what globalization means in different world
regions. „Resistance“ here has a double meaning: It can
signify active, intentional resistance to tendencies which
are rejected on political or moral grounds by presenting
alternative discourses and concepts founded in specific
cultural and national traditions. It can also mean
resilience with regard to globalization pressures in the
sense that traditional patterns of development and politics
are resistant to change. The book shows the that the local,
sub-national, national, and regional patterns of politics
and development coexist with globalized structures without
yielding very much ground and in ways which may turn out to
be a serious barrier to further globalization. Case studies
presented focus on Venezuela, Brazil, the Middle East, Iran,
and Russia.
