Description
Politicians and academics alike have made globalization the key reference point for interpreting the 1990s. For many, globalization threatens both community and the nation-state. It appears to represent forces beyond human control. This volume documents globalization's impact on everyday lives by drawing on research rather than rhetoric. The text offers an analysis of globalization and global/local processes by focusing on specific issues and themes which include community, culture, milieu, socioscapes and sociospheres, microglobalization, poverty, and ethnic identity. By advancing the debates which surround these issues through a redefinition of the terms in which they have been developed and engagement with the everyday lives of people in a global city, this book intends to reveal how key concepts, such as community culture, class, and poverty can be reconceptualized in the context of global/local processes.
