Recensioner i media

"Provocative.... Taken together, the trenchant, well-written essays included in this collection provide indisputable evidence that an identifiable global culture is indeed emerging."World Policy Journal

"Analytical and penetrating, this text belongs in classrooms as well as on the desks of anyone with an abiding interest in the forces shaping the world."Publishers Weekly

"A fascinating series of accounts, country by country, of how, as the world is thought to be getting ever smaller under the force of globalization, individual cultures are both responding to it and at the same time finding the means to sustain themselves. Nor could there be any better guides to this subject than the co-editors of this volume, Peter Berger and Samuel Huntington, whose insights into the play of culture both in the world and local affairs have been
nothing short of germinal."Midge Decter

"Finally a volume that gives the cultural side of globalization the analytic clarity it deserves. This rich collection of studies of local transformations in an era of global change reveals that cultural globalization is far more interesting and diverse than we thought. Highly readable, unfailingly rich in detail and stunning in its insights, Many Globalizations is a landmark in the study of public culture on a global scale."Mark Juergensmeyer, Director of
Global and International Studies at UC Santa Barbara
