    • This brilliant new book by one of Europe's leading social thinkers develops a far-reaching analysis of the social, economic and political transformations of the modern age. For centuries the nation-state has provided the principal framework of power in the modern world and the basis of legitimate domination, but today this is changing. How should we conceptualize a world and a set of global dynamics in which the nation-state order is being increasingly undermined?

    Resumo Power in the Global Age

    This brilliant new book by one of Europe's leading social thinkers throws light on the global power games being played out between global business, nation states and movements rooted in civil society. Beck offers an illuminating account of the changing nature of power in the global age and assesses the influence of the ever-expanding counter-powers.

    The author puts forward the provocative thesis that in an age of global crises and risks, a politics of "golden handcuffs" - the creation of a dense network of transnational interdependencies - is exactly what is needed in order to regain national autonomy, not least in relation to a highly mobile world economy. It is imperative that the maxim of nation-based realpolitik - that national interests have necessarily to be pursued by national means - be replaced by the maxim of cosmopolitan realpolitik. The more cosmopolitan our political structures and activities, Beck suggests, the more successful they will be in promoting national interests, and the greater our individual power in this global age will be.
