The "great globalization debate" began in the late 1980s with a series of proclamations as to the newness of the phenomenon. Ranging across multiple social science disciplines, globalization theory asserted that social relations were becoming increasingly deterritorialized (I-Ield, McGrew, & Perraton 1999). Subsequent revisions forced recognition of historical parallels, thus historicizing the claims, and allowed a rereading of the accounts, in terms of their discursive foundations, as globalist ideology. The debate continues, with investigations of post-globalism, in the aftermath of a more unilateralist world politics, as a state of affairs beyond globalization, rather than simply a throw-back to pre-globalist conditions.
