`Nothing is as practical as a good theory, I was once taught, and those to adhere to this principle should read Globalization. Social Theory and Global Culture. The author is a sociologist with a special
interest in the social function of religion, which colours his analysis . Originally published in 1992 it stresses the relative autonomy of culture but misses the later discussions on the economic globalization,
which may explain the author's criticism of the interpretation of globalization as an expression of the Western modernity project' - New Routes
A true classic in the theory of globalization. This is very useful for both getting students to begin to think of globalization critically but also to apply this to aspects of global society, especially culture.
Good book in supporting critical philosohical and social debates on globalisation. I think it will make a come-back as 'global ethics' becomes more popular.
