Synopsis

In lively and unflinching prose, Eric Cazdyn and Imre Szeman arguethat contemporary thought about the world is disabled by a fatalflaw: the inability to think "an after" to globalization. Afterestablishing seven theses (on education, morality, history, future,capitalism, nation, and common sense) that challenge the falsepromises that sustain this time-limit, After Globalizationexamines four popular thinkers (Thomas Friedman, Richard Florida,Paul Krugman and Naomi Klein) and how their work is dulled by thesepromises. Cazdyn and Szeman then speak to students from around theglobe who are both unconvinced and uninterested in these promisesand who understand the world very differently than the way it ispopularly represented.

After Globalization argues that a true capacity to thinkan after to globalization is the very beginning of politicstoday.
