Spaces of culture city, nation, world by Mike Featherstone ( )
18 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in English and held by 1,697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"What is culture? What is the relation between social structure and culture in a globalized and networked world? Do critical perspectives still apply, or does the speed and complexity of cultural production demand new forms of analysis?" "In Spaces of Culture an international cast of scholars examines the implications of these questions for sociology and social theory. They explore the key themes in social theory: the nation state, the city, modernity, post-Fordism and the spatial logic of the informational city." "Spaces of Culture will be required reading for students and scholars in sociology, social theory and cultural studies. It will be an essential reference in any critical discussion of the relations between globalization and technology; and culture, politics and the public sphere."--Jacket
Global modernities by Mike Featherstone ( )

'Global Modernities' is a sustained commentary on the international character of the most microcosmic practices.

Economies of signs and space by Scott Lash ( )
28 editions published between 1993 and 2002 in 3 languages and held by 1,164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In exploring this new reflexive world, Lash and Urry argue that today's economies are increasingly economies of signsinformation, symbols, images, desire - and of space, where both signs and social subjects - refugees, financiers, tourists, flaneurs - are mobile over ever greater distances. They show how an understanding of such flows contributes to the analysis of changes in social relations, from the organization of work to the 'culture industries', from the formation of an underclass to new forms of citizenship. Taking its point of departure from the authors' influential The End of Organized Capitalism, this is a book that no one in social and cultural theory, geography and urban studies, political economy, and organization studies can afford to ignore

"In the first half of the twentieth century, Theodor Adorno wrote about the 'culture industry. For Adorno, culture - along with the products of factory labour - was increasingly becoming a commodity. Now, in what they call the 'global culture industry; Scott Lash and Celia Lury argue that Adorno's worst nightmares have come true. Their new book tells the compelling story of how material objects such as watches and sportswear have become powerful cultural symbols, and how the production of symbols, in the form of globally recognized brands, has now become a central goal of capitalism. Global Culture Industry provides an empirically and theoretically rich examination of the ways in which these objects - from Nike shoes bo Toy Story, from global football to conceptual art - metamorphose and move across national borders"--Back cover
