Global Modernities

Global Modernities

Edited by:

June 1995 | 304 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Global Modernities is a sustained commentary on the international character of the most microcosmic practices. It demonstrates how the global increasingly informs the regional, so deconstructing ideas like the `nation state' and `national sovereignty'. The spatialization of social theory, hybridization and bio-politics are among the critical issues discussed.

`A timely contribution to current debates around globalization theory and an excellent introduction to this complex and contradictory field of study. Globalization theory has not simply supplanted postmodernism, but has rather refocused many of the issues raised by postmodernism towards a more serious reappraisal of the whole question of modernity itself' - Habitat International
