With contributions from leading thinkers such as J. Bhagwati and Robert Solow, this edited collection examines some hotly debated issues in today's world. The significance of globalization and its effects on welfare states is discussed and analyzed. A special chapter is devoted to terrorism, and it is explained why some people are willing to sacrifice their lives to gain 'heavenly goods'. The role of multinationals in the globalization process is examined as is the importance of changing and evolving social norms regarding work and leisure for the survival of today's welfare states.

Myconos explores the ways in which organized labour has globalized since 1945. Using two 'touchstone' indicators - the extent of cross-border integration, and the autonomy vis-à-vis the state - the book reveals a counterintuitive process: network globalization involves a continuing orientation towards the state. The book not only seeks to identify organized labour's trajectory on the macro plane, but also to provide a more precise meaning of the term 'globalization' as it relates to agency.
