    The present situation of Western European and North American societies offers a panorama marked by increasing disorder and institutional discontinuity. A crucial element in this disorder is the relationship between welfare state institutions and economic globalization. This relationship points to problems which afflict most central institutional domains of modern societies, but also to more disturbing issues like basic insecurities about values and political concepts, about the individual's position vis & vis society and political authority, and about the demarcation of different "spheres of justice". Here we are concerned with globalization and welfare states", a relationship in which all these insecurities are reflected -- and in which all this translates into conceptual and analytic problems and puzzles for the researcher. and this bibliography should provide a first orientation to anyone who begins to confront "globalization and the welfare state". What we have tried to gather together is "raw material". It may help to achieve a more complex and adequate understanding of today's welfare states and the international economic system. However, this bibliography is highly subjective -- perhaps even idiosyncratic --, and it is so for a simple reason. Our background is comparative welfare state research. Therefore we emphasize matters which are white spots in our intellectual world maps, like international relations theory and international political economy. "Hic sunt leones.' we hope that researchers from the 'international" research community will nevertheless find the bibliography useful for their own work.
