The ever-increasing trend towards the globalisation of culture presents a major challenge to traditions of social and cultural analysis developed and focussed at the level of the nation state. In this book major theorists from Cultural Studies, Sociology, Art History and Anthropology present and debate a range of paradigms for understanding the production and presentation of cultures, as socially organised systems of meaning, in 'the world as a single place'.
