Pieterse J.N. Globalization and Culture: Global Melange
Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2009. - 196 pages.

Now in a fully revised and updated edition, this seminal text asks if there is cultural life after the 'clash of civilizations' and global McDonaldization. Inteationally award-winning author Jan Nederveen Pieterse argues that what is taking place is the formation of a global mZlange, a culture of hybridization. From this perspective on globalization, conflict may be mitigated and identity preserved, albeit transformed. The book offers a comprehensive treatment of hybridization through a series of innovative conceptual tables that are bolstered by textual analysis and compelling examples from around the world. 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. This historically deep and geographically wide approach to globalization is essential reading as we face the increasing spread of conflicts bred by cultural misunderstanding.

British culture, like the proverbial elephant seized by several blindfolded persons, appears a very different beast depending on where you take hold of it. The entries in this encyclopedia are united by the term ‘British’ but separated by the stratifications of a ‘culture’ that has never been still and always been in a state of flux. The Encyclopedia of Contemporary British Culture brings together subjects which would probably never be found al...
