Cultural Studies is an emerging field and it is difficult to find books that ground students in the fundamental principles and precepts of the 'discipline'. This book like no other achieves this goal. The book is interesting, written in an accessible style for undergraduates and especially targets the relationship between globalization and culture in ways that I have found in no other book. I highly recommend this book for both the international relations and the cultural studies classrooms. -- Rita Kiki Edozie, Michigan State University

Vom Verlag:

Now in a fully revised and updated edition, this seminal text asks if there is cultural life after the "clash of civilizations" and global McDonaldization. Internationally award-winning author Jan Nederveen Pieterse argues that what is taking place is the formation of a global melange, a culture of hybridization. From this perspective on globalization, conflict may be mitigated and identity preserved, albeit transformed. The book offers a comprehensive treatment of hybridization through a series of innovative conceptual tables that are bolstered by textual analysis and compelling examples from around the world. In a new chapter, the author explores East-West hybridities-the idea that globalization is a process of braiding rather than simply a diffusion from developed to developing countries. This historically deep and geographically wide approach to globalization is essential reading as we face the increasing spread of conflicts bred by cultural misunderstanding.
