Book Description Brill, Netherlands, 2010. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This volume discusses globalising processes from the perspective of the humanities and social sciences. It focuses on the `global south , notably the Middle East, Asia, and Africa. Densely researched case studies examine a variety of approaches for their potential to understand connecting processes on different scales. The studies seek to overcome the main traps of the `globalisation paradigm, such as its occidental bias, its notion of linear expansion, its simplifying dichotomy between `local and `global , and an often-found lack of historical depth. They elaborate the asymmetries, mobilities, opportunities and barriers involved in globalising processes. Their new perspective on these processes is captured by the concept of `translocality , which aims at integrating a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches from different disciplines.
