Overview

Now fully revised and updated, this seminal text asks if there is cultural life after the "clash of civilizations" and global McDonaldization.

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.
