Much discussed but poorly understood, globalization is at once praised as the answer to all the world's problems and blamed for everything from pollution to poverty. Here Berger and Huntington bring together an array of experts who paint a subtle and richly shaded portrait, showing both the power and the unexpected consequences of this great force.
The stereotypes of globalization--characterized as American imperialism on the one hand, and as an economic panacea on the other--fall apart under close scrutiny. Surveying globalization from individual countries of the five major continents, Many Globalizations shows that an emerging global culture does indeed exist. While globalization is American in origin and content, the authors point out that it is far from a centrally directed force like classic imperialism. They examine the currents that carry this culture, from a worldwide class of young professionals to non-governmental organizations, and define globalization's many variations as well as sub-globalizations that bind regions together.
Analytical, incisive and stimulating, Many Globalizations offers rare insight into perhaps the central issue of modern times, one that is changing the West as much as the developing world.
"Provocative.... Taken together, the trenchant, well-written essays included in this collection provide indisputable evidence that an identifiable global culture is indeed emerging."--World Policy Journal
"Analytical and penetrating, belongs...on the desks of anyone with an abiding interest in the forces shaping the world."--Publishers Weekly

Review:


"Provocative.... Taken together, the trenchant, well-written essays included in this collection provide indisputable evidence that an identifiable global culture is indeed emerging."--World Policy Journal


"Analytical and penetrating, this text belongs in classrooms as well as on the desks of anyone with an abiding interest in the forces shaping the world."--Publishers Weekly


"A fascinating series of accounts, country by country, of how, as the world is thought to be getting ever smaller under the force of globalization, individual cultures are both responding to it and at the same time finding the means to sustain themselves. Nor could there be any better guides to this subject than the co-editors of this volume, Peter Berger and Samuel Huntington, whose insights into the play of culture both in the world and local affairs have been nothing short of germinal."--Midge Decter


"Finally a volume that gives the cultural side of globalization the analytic clarity it deserves. This rich collection of studies of local transformations in an era of global change reveals that cultural globalization is far more interesting and diverse than we thought. Highly readable, unfailingly rich in detail and stunning in its insights, Many Globalizations is a landmark in the study of public culture on a global scale."--Mark Juergensmeyer, Director of Global and International Studies at UC Santa Barbara
