Analytically, my structural and macro orientation is in tension with postmodern scholarship that rejects totalizing metanarratives in favor of attention to difference, specificity, and locality. As I hope the book demonstrates, I share this critique of totalizing discourse and analysis. At the same time, I join those postmodernists who argue that a rejection of universalizing metanarratives does not entail rejecting large-scale and systematic analyses of how power operates. The risks of overgeneralization are ever present and my interventions are neither innocent nor adequate in this regard.
As already noted, my apparent emphasis on economic phenomena is not because I believe economic activities are more significant than socio-cultural and political phenomena but because they constitute relations of local-global power, are poorly understood, and warrant more critical attention. As systemic sites of power - involving meaning systems, normalization, subjectivities, and institutions — the RPV framing and triad analytics enable us to map identities and culture in relation to social practices and structures that are the focus of economics and international relations.
Systems of meaning then produce power relations by producing codes — "grids of intelligibility" — that govern thought, communication, knowledge, and hence actions and their power-laden effects. Attention to symbols and culture throughout the book and inclusion of the virtual economy confirm that an interpretive orientation is essential for understanding the material and conceptual in relation. Similarly, I understand gender not merely as an empirical category of malefemale sex difference but an analytical category, indeed a governing code.
