About this book

By revisiting globalization using an analysis of metaphors, such as 'global village' and 'network society', this volume sheds new light on overlooked dimensions of global politics, redresses outdated conceptualizations, and provides a critical analysis of existing approaches to the study of globalization.

Reviews

'...[this] book provides much - and generally, delectable - food for thought.' Andreas Musolff, Durham University, Discourse& Society

'The volume represents a valuable contribution to both globalisation studies and the analysis of metaphors in general, as its multidisciplinary design allows for adequately dealing with the heterogeneity of globalisation.' Millennium - Journal of International Studies
