Summary
"Transnational Connections provides a lucid account of culture in an age of globalization, arguing that, in an increasingly interconnected world, national understandings of culture have become insufficient. He explores the implications of boundary-crossings and long-distance cultural flows for established notions of "the local", "community," "nation" and "modernity," engaging not only theoretical debates about culture and globalization but issues of how we think and live today." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/enhancements/fy0649/95046217-d.html
