Product Description In this provocative and incisive book, Zaki Laidi argues that as our world becomes ever larger, our ability to find meaning in it diminishes. With the end of communism came the end of the intimate alliance between power and ideology. No power in our globalised world can any longer claim to provide meaning. Review ""A World Without Meaning has been a major influence on French thinking about the wider impacts of globalization on international relations. Particularly, it is a book that analyzes the importance of the postmodern sentiment' as a salient factor in international relations. Its translation into English is timely and important." -Richard Higgott, Director, Centre for the Study of Globalization and Regionalization, University of Warwick About the Author Zaki Laidi is a researcher at the Centre d'Etudes et de Recherches Internationale.
