Held and McGrew:
Globalization - interconnectedness of economies, politics, and ideas of the world that is changing the notion of nation-states.
Transformationalists - nation-states hold power over their borders, but it's not absolute. Globalization drives change in the world.
Hyperglobalists - nation-states are unnatural, they claim that a truly global civilization will arise.
Globalization is a historical process that can be traced centuries back.
