9780742556065: Globalization and Culture: Global Mélange

Now fully revised and updated, this seminal text asks if there is cultural life after the 'clash of civilizations' and global McDonaldization. Jan Nederveen Pieterse argues that what is taking place is a global culture of hybridization. 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. His historically deep and geographically wide approach to globalization is essential reading as we face the spread of conflicts bred by cultural misunderstanding.

Review:

PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION Pieterse takes a historically deep approach, developing the perspective of global melange or hybridization of both territorial culture and translocal culture... Future Survey PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION The discourse on cultural globalization is one of the best examples of itself: it is confusingly globalized. So we urgently need this enlightened unpacking of globalization by one of the pioneers of the debate-Jan NederveenPieterse... -- Ulrich Beck, Institut fur Soziologie, Germany PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION Critical, creative, and committed, Jan Nederveen Pieterse's Globalization and Culture is a work of highly impressive scholarship and rich imagination. Historically informed and theoretically wide-ranging, this is a reader-friendly must read for all interested in this immensely topical subject. The author's deep personal engagement with the notion of hybridization makes a substantial contribution to the literature... -- Anthony D. King, State University of New York, Binghamton PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION Cultural change is all too frequently either overlooked entirely in discussions of globalization or dismissed with glib and misleading generalities about homogenization or clashing civilizations. Jan Nederveen Pieterse offersa perspective that is more complex, truer to the ever-shifting realities of twenty first-century life, and far more interesting. With this book, he establishes himself as a world-class thinker about the world... -- Walter Truett Anderson, president, World Academy of Art and Science PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION Globalization and Culture is a significant contribution to a debate that is interdisciplinary, heated, and concerned with contemporary issues. Globalization produces cultural interaction, new permutations, and new differences which Nederveen Pieterse persuasively defends as part of the hybridization thesis. Whether one agrees with him or not (and I do), this book is essential reading for those who want an intelligent and lively guide to the debate about the effects of globalization on culture... -- Keith Griffin, University of California, Riverside PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION Globalization and Culture launches a succinct attack on the 'anti-hybridity backlash' with a withering critique of its paradigmatic exemplar...

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
