About the book

This book is about China’s role in the world to come and includes the author’s recent explorations of China’s readiness to assume a global leadership role. The book effectively links the study of Max Weber, an important Western theorist during the global transformation of the nineteenth to twentieth centuries, with the study of Xi Jinping's thinking during the global transformation from the twentieth to the twenty-first century. According to the author, on the one hand, Western classical theory can still provide the core ideas for rethinking today's global cooperation. On the other hand, Xi Jinping's ‘The Belt and Road’ initiative, though only a very recent attempt to show how China as a new player in the world can help to heal its divisions, has as its foundation Xi’s thinking on the governance of China, which has demonstrated that the initiative will serve as a means to promote global peace and cooperation rather than strengthen great power rivalries. The author believes that we can shape global ethics in the process of rediscovering the deep roots of common civilized values that will underpin the global cooperative recovery. This book will be translated and available in Chinese. It is expected it will help a wider readership from China and other countries and regions to understand China and how it can contribute to the shared human future.

About the Author

About the Author

In a career in sociology spanning over 50 years, Martin Albrow PhD (University of Cambridge) held the Chair in Sociological Theory in the University of Wales in Cardiff before becoming Professor Emeritus in 1989. Since then, he has held visiting positions in numerous institutions, including the Eric Voegelin chair in Munich, and chairs in the London School of Economics, State University of New York, Stonybrook, and the Beijing Foreign Studies University. He has been Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, Washington DC, and the Käte Hamburger Center for Advanced Studies, ‘Law as Culture’, Bonn University. He is now based in London.

Currently a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences in the UK, in the past he has been President of the British Sociological Association, Editor of its British Journal of Sociology and founding editor of International Sociology, the journal of the International Sociological Association.

His first visit to China was in 1987 on an observational tour with the State Family Planning Commission and in recent years he has contributed to the annual Symposium on China Studies with the Academy of Social Sciences and the Ministry of Culture of the PRC.

His specialties include social theory, organization theory and Max Weber’s thought, and he is internationally known for his pioneering work on globalization. His The Global Age: State and Society beyond Modernity (1996) won the European Amalfi Prize in 1997. Other books include Bureaucracy (1970), Max Weber’s Construction of Social Theory (1990), Globalization, Knowledge and Society (1990, ed. with E. King), Do Organizations Have Feelings? (1997), Sociology: The Basics (1999), Global Civil Society (co-editor) in 2006/7, 2007/8 and 2011 and Global Age Essays on Social and Cultural Change (2014).

Endorsements

Professor Martin Albrow is one of the foremost sociologists in the English-speaking world and one of the greatest experts on globalization, perhaps the most significant driving force of our times.  In his pioneering work The Global Age (1996), written when the term “globalization” itself was quite new, he set out the main dimensions of the profound changes that had begun to transform world society. In its most fundamental meaning, “globalization” refers to the intensifying interdependence of individuals, institutions and states across the globe. … In this book Albrow does a remarkable job of shedding light on these extraordinary changes and on the pivotal role that China is likely to have in shaping their further evolution. As the United States pulls back from its former global role, China not only can, but must, assume a pivotal position in shaping world society for the better.

——Professor Anthony Giddens, from Preface of this book

What is the process of incorporation of Chinese ideas and thinking into a transcultural public social science? Is the Belt and Road project the successor to Western economic globalization? Is Asia going to be the continent that works through the dilemmas of sustainable modernity? Martin Albrow is one of the very few social scientists who has the authority, experience and ambition to give us the answers, in this rich collection of essays.

——Professor Sam Whimster, Editor, Max Weber Studies

Professor Albrow’s book provides a fascinating counterpoint to Western-centric notions of China as a ‘rising power’. It is unique in providing a globalist view of how China understands its new role and how its leadership is already fundamentally reshaping the architecture of the world in the 21st century. China is becoming a global nation and this book explains how. In the process, sinology and global governance scholarship just got more properly global.

——Associate Professor Olaf Corry, PhD, University of Copenhagen

关于本书

        本书结集了作者近年来关于中国及其中国在未来世界中承担全球领导角色的探讨。该书把十九至二十世纪全球转型时期西方重要理论家马克斯·韦伯(Max Weber)的研究与二十至二十一世纪全球转型时期对习近平的思想的研究富有成效地联系起来。作者认为,一方面,西方经典理论仍然能为今天全球合作的重新思考提供了核心思想;另一方面,尽管习近平近年来提出的“一带一路”倡议,试图展示中国如何成为世界新兴力量以帮助弥合世界分歧的基础,但他对中国治国理政的思考表明这一举措将成为促进全球和平与合作的手段,而不是加剧大国的对抗。作者相信,在重新发现共同文明价值观的深层根源的过程中,我们可以塑造全球伦理,并将成为全球合作复苏的基础。本书将被翻译成中文,在英语和中文世界出版,有助于来自中国和其他国家及地区的更广泛的读者了解中国及其如何参与全球治理并为共同的人类未来作出贡献。

隆重推荐:

        做为英语世界最重要的社会学家以及我们这个历史时代最重要的推动力的全球化研究的开创者之一,马丁·阿尔布劳的此书“对于人类社会巨大变化以及中国在塑造其进一步发展方面可能发挥的关键作用做了卓有成效的研究。当美国从过去的全球角色中撤出时,中国不但可以,而且必须在塑造世界社会中起到举足轻重的作用。”

                         ——摘自当代著名社会理论家安东尼·吉登斯的本书《序言》

        西方思想使社区和社团,理性和情感二分化。中国思想包含关系中的互惠性,道家概念的流动性和儒家思想的整合性。当中国通过求助于公共和哲学的会科学从社会底层到最高层监测其进展,西方思想推动了新自由主义成为全球普遍主义。它以金融形式破坏了大多数西方社会的政治和社会结构。中国的观念和思想融入转文化公共社会科学的过程是什么?“一带一路”项目是西方经济全球化的继续吗?亚洲将成为走出可持续现代性困境的大陆吗 ?作为世界上为数不多的集权威、经验和抱负于一身的社会科学家,马丁·阿尔布劳这部丰富的文集给我们提供了答案。

——《韦伯研究》主编山姆·威敏斯特教授

       阿尔布劳教授这本书提供了一个与以西方为中心的中国的“大国崛起”的概念不同的引人入胜的反例。它提供了独一无二的全球主义者的视野:关于中国如何理解其新角色以及其领导力如何从根本上重塑21世纪的世界架构。这本书解释了中国正在如何成为一个全球性的国家。在此过程中,汉学和全球治理的学术研究在全球范围内变得更加全球。

——全球研究专家,丹麦哥本哈根大学奥拉夫·科里教授
