Street Protests and Fantasy Parks: Globalization, Culture, and the State
The speed and intensity of global integration have provoked serious debate about the human impact of globalization and deep concern about the capacity of the state to provide social justice. This volume focuses on two dimensions of globalization: the cultural and social realities of global connection and the uneasily shifting role of the state.

Published in 2002, Stein and Cameron's collection of articles on the social effects of globalization is still relevant. The closing chapter, written by the co-editors posits several possible futures for governments coping with the course of globalization. I found the options and commentary heavily favored their preferred model.
