Globalization is an umbrella term and perhaps best understood as unitary process inclusive of many sub-processes (such as enhanced economic interdependence, increased cultural influence, rapid advances of information technology, and novel governance and geographical challenges) that are increasingly binding people and biosphere more tightly into one global system.

The role of Japan’s increasing economic power and that of the changing U. Ling's new book, The Dao of World Politics: Towards a Post-Westphalian, Worldist International Relations. In this vein, international relations scholar Thomas Weiss has lamented the intellectual and political shifts in perspective from world government to global governance, arguing that current voluntary associations, organizations and networks at the global level are “so obviously inadequate” to meeting global challenges that we “are obliged to ask ourselves whether we can approach anything that resembles effective governance for the world without institutions with some supranational characteristics at the global level” (2009, 264).

A reading of seminal works in the theory of political economy. Economic development in Asia and Latin America is blurring the simple dichotomy of haves and have-nots. Afghanistan and Myanmar are often included in discussions of the region as a whole. France felt that Germany should “cover the costs of restoration of invaded territories and repayment of war debts [and that] a long period of stiff repayments … would have the added advantage of keeping Germany financially and economically weak.” 19 Britain, on the other hand, was concerned with the revival of international trade and knew that if Germany was heavily in debt with the Allied Powers, she would not be able to purchase British goods in sufficient quantities. 20 Because of all of the ambiguities involving the war reparations, an exact monetary figure owed by the Germans to the Allies was never included in the Treaty of Versailles.

Hitler became an advocate of fascism, an ideology that saw politics in terms of racial conflict between different nations, championed authoritarianism, and despised liberal values. The ECSC in turn was unique because it was a manifestation of sector-specific international integration, which subsequently became illegal under the rules of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT).
