Paul Hopper has done a brilliant work in synthesizing the existing theories on and around cultural globalization. In his book, Understanding Cultural Globalization, he has looked through the major topics that are now in debate in this broad area.

What is culture?

Paul Hopper leads the reader through the varied issues associated with globalization and culture, including, cosmopolitanism, cultural hybridization and homogenization, as well as claims that aspects of globalization are provoking cultural resistance.

This book provides a lively discussion of one of the most used and abused concepts in the 21st century globalization. If globalization is a valid construct it manifests itself in lived experience, not abstract theories. Examining the ways in which globalization is contributing to patterns of conflict, Living with Globalization explores a range of case studies, from 9/11 to identity formation. The book reveals the complex ramifications of globalization on society, government and everyday lives. There is currently much debate about globalization.

Cultural globalization refers to the transmission of ideas, meanings, and values around the world in such a way as to extend and intensify social relations. This process is marked by the common consumption of cultures that have been diffused by the Internet, popular culture media, and international travel. This has added to processes of commodity exchange and colonization which have a longer history of carrying cultural meaning around the globe

To read or write a book about culture is self-obliging wandering supermarket in serch of a Marmelade with taste of past , and they have stocked only overpriced chocolate spread. To understand cultural globalization ...- have anyone some culture of her/his own left? I find it fascinating and retarding trend when messenger after achieving its delivery point deliver wrong message and you should pay. Perhaps it is current state of digitally remasterd - accelerated cultural global wish to be it so. Was any time before human intercourse based on so many horizontal preconceptions and shortcuts. When see actors or participants of live cultural events - have you not noticed that they miss reality of time and space.But as book say ,costumes or uniformity is part of our understanding or misunderstanding.
