In contemporary global discourse, there has been a controversial debate about the concept of globalization especially within the context of impact on weak economies and ‘fringe players’. The controversy had its immediate drive in the deluge of contrasting literature on the concept. While liberal democratic societies glorify the unifying capacity of globalization to strengthen weak economies by the wholesale participation in unrestricted trade, many that see themselves as ‘victims’ of borderless borders advance deliberately erected challenges as factors that impinge on their being voluntary members of a shrinking global village. This book volume is to further widen the debate from the purview of developing countries. The impact of unrestricted global business is quite soothing but the bifurcation between the rich and poor states remain most unsettling to several weak economies. In this direction, we call for book chapters in the wide area of globalization-political, economic, security, social or even cultural. Abstract of 250 words to be received on the 30th of July 2011 while full papers must be received by 10th of October, 2011. The work will be out from the press by February, 2012.
