"Globalization has received considerable attention from the political and economic perspective. "The Cultures and Globalization Series" is intended to fill a gap in current research by studying the cultural consequences of globalization. This volume also includes cultural indicators with a visual representation of data relevant to culture and globalization. A variety of charts, graphs, and data tables add value. Summing up: Highly recommended."
In the age of globalization we are no longer home alone. Migration brings other worlds into our own just as the global reach of the media transmits our world into the hearts and minds of others. Often incommensurate values are crammed together in the same public square. Increasingly we all today live in the kind of 'edge cultures' we used to see only on the frontiers of civilizations in places like Hong Kong or Istanbul. The resulting frictions and fusions are shaping the soul of the coming world order.
