Overview

In this innovative book, John Hutnyk questions the meaning of cultural hybridity. Using the growing popularity of Asian culture in the West as a case study, he looks at just who benefits from this intermingling of culture.

What does it mean when Madonna dons a bindi or Kula Shaker incorporate sitar music in their music? When Cherie Blair wears a sari to a public dinner? When the national dish in the UK is chicken tikka masala? Is this a celebration of multiculturalism or cultural appropriation? Hutnyk offers a cogently theorized political critique of the claims made in the name of hybridity and challenges the academic world to come out of its ivory tower and to engage in a critical debate around the real issues in cultural politics at the turn of the century

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Focussing on music, race, and politics, Hutnyk (anthropology, Goldsmiths College) offers a theoretical critique of the "culture industry" and its shallow acceptance of multiculturalism. He also challenges academic complicity with the promotion of the "exotic," and urges the politicization of ethnographic research. Drawing from critical theory, he considers popular music as a location for political and cultural struggle, and outlines its organizing potential. Distributed in the US by Stylus. Annotation c.
