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.
