This volume explores the phenomenon of Americanization and its worldwide impact, and the cultural consequences of globalization. Following an introductory overview, three chapters deal with theoretical perspectives on cosmopolitanism, Americanization, globalization, culture, modernity and immediacy. Case studies follow on France, Japan and China, and there are six chapters on transnational processes as they affect culture and society. An epilogue reflects on definitions of Americanization and anti-Americanism, and their consequences for the world.
