Chapter Summary

The Global Studies Association of North America (GSA) was established in 2001, alongside its sister organization in the United Kingdom. Each year the GSA brings together scholars and activists from the United States , Canada, and Mexico to discuss and debate the many diverse aspects of globalization. Tabb confronts the arguments of transnational capitalist class (TCC) theorists William Robinson and Jerry Harris, maintaining the importance of the nationstate even as he recognizes the expansion of the transnational economy. Joshua Walker chooses to look into Ottoman history to understand Turkey's current global project. Walker contends that the Ottoman legacy as an imperial state defines its national self- perception, affecting Turkey's contemporary role in the world. Somdeep Sen turns our focus to the former Yugoslavia and the role of language in national identity.
