Economies of signs and space by Scott Lash( Book )

29 editions published between 1993 and 2012 in English and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Economies of Signs and Space presents a novel account of social change that supplants conventional understandings of 'society'. In this extraordinary and wide-ranging book, two eminent theorists develop a sociology that takes as its main unit of analysis social and cultural flows through time and across space. Focusing on post-industrial economies, the study examines social inequality and changing experiences of time, space, culture, travel, the environment and globalization. Through a comparative analysis of the UK and USA, Germany and Japan, Lash and Urry show how restructuration after organized capitalism has its basis in increasingly reflexive social actors and organizations. The consequence is not only the much-vaunted 'postmodern condition' but a growth in reflexivity

17 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 424 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

"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

Global China by Michael Keith( )

China has been growing at over ten per cent annually since 1978, but this has only come to very widespread notice in the past decade. This received wisdom about China has been largely of two types, both of which - more or less - understand China in the context of neoliberalism. The more business- or business studies-oriented literature seems to argue that if China does not adapt the rule of clear and distinct property and contract law - in short, of Western institutions - its economy will stall.
