Summary/Abstract: The article refers to a definition of globalisation in three perspectives, namely the development of territorial boarders and in particular the redefinition of regions, the development of the division of labour and distribution of power, and the changed role of culture. The latter is thereby not least understood as a new culture of capitalism. With this orientation it is aimed at developing a historical perspective on globalisation that refers not simply on an increasing loss of borders. Instead, the argument is directed to the understanding more the actual background of changes in world-capitalism by investigating a broad outline of the changing process of production. In this light, globalisation is not seen as a linear process but a matter of permanent ‘negotiations’ and reorganisation.
