Times of Malta
"An impressive wide-ranging survey of the different forms andpractices of cultural interaction in human history, and of theconcepts that we now use to try to understand them. Whether weembrace these influences or resist them, globalization, Burkeargues, is leading to the emergence of a new cultural order. Thisbook offers us an indispensible guide to the culturaltransformations of our times."
Robert J.C. Young, New York University
"An inspiring and illuminating survey of this highly topical andimportant field. Burke wears his outstanding erudition verylightly, and seeks to inform and enlighten his readers rather thanto impress or browbeat them. He manages to encompass, in this briefsurvey, a wealth of historical roots and ramifications both withinand outside Europe, and maintain analytical clarity at all times.Burke's rigorous, but never rigid, clarity of thought is alwaysflexibly attuned to the complexities of historicalexperience."
J. Th. Leerssen, University of Amsterdam
