Globalization, imperialism, terrorism, and freedom are some of the terms used not only to characterize our times, but also to shape global futures. We shall consider how these terms and the theories behind them frame interpretations of, and interventions in, transformations of the world, especially over the last twenty years. We explore five principal themes

  1. the social consequences of the revolution in information and communication technology;
  2. the conditions and consequences of changes in America's position in the world system's power relations;
  3. transformations in world religions and their association with violence;
  4. communism's European end alongside the European Union's expansion) and the relationship among them; and
  5. the cultural politics of energy security.
