Description - Cultural Globalization by J. Macgregor Wise
Cultural Globalization: A User's Guide is a personal and idiosyncratic journey through theories of culture and globalization. Drawing on diverse research literature from the fields of anthropology, cultural studies, cultural geography, and media studies, J. Macgregor Wise presents a new perspective through which to raise questions about globalization, a perspective framed by the concepts of territory, identity, and culture. This lively and engaging book draws on a myriad of examples from Asian, European, and North American youth culture and popular music. It is a vivid reminder that global processes are a part of who we are and what we do, and that these same processes carry with them the ethical questions of how to act in the world and how to care for others.
