This volume addresses issues of political and economic globalization and worldwide connectedness of countries posing a question whether it symbolizes progress or regress for world's societies. Starting with the notion of modernization resulting from globalized development, and supported by the notion of "the end of civilization and the last men" envisioned as outcomes of worldwide democratization, the collection of papers focuses on economic and political issues experiences by countries at the time of rapid diffusions of democracy and of global market economy. The case studies of pertinent political issues such as international migration, human rights and international conflict, political interventions, tolerance and equality, environmental protection and green energy, and economic justice are discussed by authors focusing on modern societies of developed and developing world. The concluding chapter provides a summary of presented topics in form of a discussion forum on outcomes of globalization.
