Reviews

"Essays in this unique collection sharply engage the importance of culture - in manifold expressions among migrant, immigrant, and diasporic communities, and across the world - as mediating, and at timescritically transforming, the powerful social and economic processes of globalization." - Lisa Lowe, Professor of Comparative Literature, University of California, San Diego"The theoretically informed and analytically significant essays gathered together in this volume introduce aesthetic categorizations and interpretive frameworks that promise to revise settled economic understandings of what 'globalization' signifies and to explain the complex roles that migratory and diasporic movements have played in bringing about cultural transformation. This will prove an invaluable resource and point of departure for students and scholar across the disciplines who are interested in the contemporary debates about globalization." - Donald E. Pease, Professor of English, Avalon Foundation Chair of the Humanities, Dartmouth College
