Globalization and Culture

Four Volume Set
Edited by:
  • Paul James - Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology, Australia

December 2009 | 1 720 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

Globalization and Culture is the third set in the Central Current in Globalization series, a gold-standard collection of over 320 of the most important writings on globalization, structured around four interrelated themes: Violence; Economy; Culture; and Politics.

Globalization and Culture engages engages with the cultural dimensions of globalization. Volume I takes up the theme of communications beginning with the expansion of the technologies of long-distance communication in the late-nineteenth century, and into the rise of global news services in the early twentieth century, while Volume II looks at role religion has had in the process of globalization from the early mediaeval period through to the present 'War on Terror'. The third volume brings together essays that examine global-local consumption in two different, if increasingly related, ways. The processes associated with globalization have created hitherto unimaginable opportunities for cultural forms and practices to travel far beyond the indigenous sites and spaces in which they were first conceived and produced. The selections in Volume IV map the many ideologies of globalism beginning with the heliocentrism associated with classical astronomy and cartography to the development of market globalism as one of the dominant ideologies of our time.
