About this book

This book is concerned with the many ways in which globalization impacts upon indigenous peoples, and their response. It explores the global political economy and the ideological and ontological grounds upon which the emergent global order is based. From the perspective of a Maori scholar and activist, it reviews the development of international law and the world order of nation states. It examines the international arena, the national state and forms of regionalism as sites for the reshaping of the global politico-economic order and the emergence of Empire. It identifies the emergence of a new form of global domination in which the connecting roles of militarism and the economy, and the increase in technologies of surveillance and control have acquired growing significance. It argues that indigenous world views are profoundly important to the development of alternative frameworks for global order that combine economic principles with spiritual values.
