“Greg Wise's new book is an achievement in globalization"writ small," allowing us to feel and assess things that movebetween and across borders, hybrid things, things whosein-betweenness poses to us personal but necessary dilemmas.Finally, the subject of cultural globalization receives a delicateaffective treatment.”
John Nguyet Erni, Professor of Cultural Studies,Lingnan University, Hong Kong

“With rigour and elegance, Wise deftly captures themovement of culture through the world. CulturalGlobalization is rich in detailed cases, from a wide variety ofplaces and cultural genres. The author's engaging, accessibleanalytic voice make this both a perfect course text and animportant contribution to debates on globalization.”
