This collection of invaluable essays explores, analyzes and critically evaluates the interaction between globalization and New Zealand sovereignty.
The volume is the first to seriously address this subject in a systematic fashion.
It pursues three interrelated lines of enquiry: the impact of globalization on the policy making machinery of the New Zealand state; the development of New Zealand political culture, including its sense of national identity; during the globalization era; and New Zealand's role on the international stage in a globalizing world.
The book reveals the paradoxes of New Zealand's encounter with globalization.
It will provide essential reading for specialists of globalization and for general readers interested in the complex national experience of New Zealand.
