Global America?: The Cultural Consequences of Globalization

Ulrich Beck, Nathan Sznaider, and Rainer Winter


Many contemporary issues cannot be readily or fully understood at the level of the nation state and the concept of globalization is used to develop understanding through the analysis of global (transnational) processes. This volume explores the phenomenon of Americanization, and its worldwide impact, and the cultural consequences of globalization.

Keywords: contemporary issues, nation state, globalization, global processes, transnational processes, Americanization, worldwide impact, cultural consequences, concept of globalization
