An intervention into current debates about globalization, nationalism, imperialism, and culture, this book offers a cogent critique of much of what is being said about globalization, by both the Right and the Left. In doing so, it charts the complex processes of globalization, drawing out their historical and philosophical roots and outlining the connections between cultural, political, and economic life that globalization has made, historically and in our day. The Ends of Globalization is the most comprehensive and reasonable assessment of the much discussed and distorted phenomena of "globalization" that I have read. Bamyeh's account is deeply rooted in the philosophical_x000B_traditions and political and economic histories not only of the "West," but_x000B_also of an impressive assortment of "non-Western" sources and traditions._x000B_The combination of immense erudition, effortlessness, and lucidity combine_x000B_to make this a truly exciting read._x000B_--John Michael, author of Anxious Intellects: Academic Professionals,_x000B_Public Intellectuals, and Enlightment Values_x000B_
