Product Highlights Global Modernities. One of the inherent problems with globalisation theory, however, has been that so far it has appeared to be little more than a blunt assertion Therborn. Theoretically, globalisation has frequently seemed an empty term, used to underwrite everything and, in doing so, explaining very little. Global Modernities is both a timely contribution to current debates around globalisation theory and an excellent introduction to this complex and contradictory field of study.

Globalisation theory has not simply supplanted postmodernism, but has rather refocused many of the issues raised by postmodernism towards a more serious reappraisal of the whole question of modernity itself. Postmodernism continues to define the theoretical parameters of many of the essays presented here King, Halton , whilst the celebration of global difference and hybridity has more than a mere echo of postmodern themes Pieterse, Luke.

It is also evident from this collection that globalisation theory has continued the postmodernist trend towards the spatialisation of social theory Friedman, Luke, King, Game.

One of the great strengths of this volume, however, is that it returns us to a more considered view of the plurality of modernities, rather than the monolithic conception proffered by many postmodernists. The correlative of this universalising narrative has been the downgrading of the nation state in the new world order. The difficulty with this particular view is that it has never adequately been able to account for the resurgence of virulent nationalism on the one hand, or the persistence of more traditional forms of national identities on the other.

Borrowing from Japanese business jargon, Robertson suggests that globalisation should be understood as glocalisation, a process in which the local and the global are not opposed to each other but are dialectically interrelated. The global must be seen as defining itself in relation to the local, the local is included within the global as an essential part of its definition, at the same time, the local is defined as trans-locally. The theme of globalisation as heterogeneity is developed in a number of subsequent essays Pieterse, Friedman, Luke.

The contradictory dynamics of modernity is further examined in two penetrating essays by Therborn and Bauman. Therborn insists that if we are to avoid rewriting old debates in new terms we need to discard conceptions of modernity and modernisation as a single unifying process and explore the different routes to and through it.

Therborn sketches four such routes here: the European gate of revolution or reform, New World independence, externally induced modernisation and colonialism. One of the most interesting articles in this section, however, serves to highlight one of the weaknesses of this volume and globalisation theory in general. Oleg Kharkhordin provides a fascinating study of the emergence of the Soviet individual from to the present, suggesting that dissimulation is the defining practice and legacy of the Soviet individual.

Dissimulation could also be said to be the defining practice of globalisation theory, for despite notions of hybridity, creolisation and peripheries, from the contributions to this volume globalisation still appears to be an essentially West European and North American phenomenon. We have yet to see a truly global perspective on the question of modernity.
