The article analyzes the social sciences concerning the global factors responsible for transnational terrorism. The author derives two opposing globalization frameworks from the 9/11 attack in the U.S. First, the destructive globalization, which argues that processes related to the trans-nationalization of capital produce native resistance in the more disadvantaged areas, is referred to as transnational terrorist attacks. Second, civilizing globalization, which brings economic globalization through the spread of markets and material goods. In addition to these, the author proposes a framework that would examine the role of globalization of world culture in the production of anti-U.S. terrorism.
