Theorizing Globalization
A Critique of the Mediatization of Social Theory
Theorizing Globalization offers a reassessment of mainstream perspectives on globalization, providing essential insights into an enormously popular field of study.
Instead of recycling common arguments, Ampuja critically examines the works of key globalization theorists to demonstrate their excessive fascination with recent changes in media and communications technology. The author argues that many theorists’ media-centric and unhistorical treatment of globalization stands in the way of a critical understanding of how the global media and modern capitalist societies have evolved.
