Chapter Summary

Economic, political, and social globalization processes have disrupted the relationship of societies to individual members and of societies to one another. This chapter explores a narrow range of globalization effects on these relationships. Using international data bases to demonstrate people's attachment to and confidence in various levels of social order, it outlines a preliminary sketch of these relationships. Select trends within and among states are analyzed in this context to suggest opportunities through which states may be strengthened rather than threatened by globalization. The chapter examines the individual society relationship as it pertains specifically to the state and the society to system of societies relationship as it pertains to relations among states. Three major effects of globalization on the relationship between the society and individuals that have potential to strengthen the state in the global order are nation building, expanding democratization, and changes in the meanings of democracy.
