This selection of articles consists only of recent articles (2016 and after) dealing with globalization, neoliberalism, and cosmopolitanism, and the political and cultural opposition which they have engendered. The coverage here is broad enough that it includes some of the key themes that became prominent in public debates, such as citizenship and immigration, as well as the decline of what former US president George H.W. Bush proclaimed as the New World Order. The material begins with key events that took place in 2016, such as the UK’s Brexit vote, and the election of Donald J. Trump to the US presidency. (Readers may also wish to check this site’s lists for articles on The New Victorianism and Empire, as the two are sometimes closely related to the list below.)
