Abstract

A collection of fourteen articles brings to the fore some of the negative effects of globalization. Whilst not denying the opportunities brought to the world by globalization, the authors try to shed light on the fact that there are less visible, but extremely dangerous, consequences such as terrorism, insurgency and all types of illicit trafficking. Though these phenomena are not entirely new to the world, they now use sophisticated and advanced technologies to exploit the weaknesses of governments and international organizations.

要旨
本書にはグローバリゼーションの負の側面に焦点を当てた14の論文が収められている。グローバリゼーションは社会にさまざまな恩恵をもたらしたが、テロ、組織犯罪、密輸など、表面には見えにくいが極めて危険な事例を著者は提示する。そこでは最新の科学技術を駆使しながら、各国政府や国際機関の盲点が突かれている新たな現象を明らかにしている。
