Global Structures, Local Cultures 2e, examines the process of globalisation and its impact on modern society. It is clearly written and logically structured with case studies from around the world that engage and encourage students to think about the historical and contemporary connectionsbetween societies and cultures. The major sociological concepts and theoretical frameworks are outlined clearly and positioned contextually alongside fields such as gender, ethnicity, religion, migration, indigenous peoples, tourism, and social movements.
Mary Hawkins is Associate Professor and Director of Academic Programs (Sociology, Criminology, Peace and Development Studies) for the School of Social Sciences and Psychology at the University of Western Sydney, Australia.
