about

Metaphors of Globalization inquires into the power and politics of metaphors in the making of our globalizing era. The approach is multidisciplinary, with case studies in global finance, global governance, literary theory, political theory, anthropology, and sociology. By revisiting globalization through the analysis of metaphors, this volume sheds new light on usually overlooked dimensions of global politics, improves on many outdated conceptualizations, and undertakes a critical analysis of existing approaches to the study of globalization.
