The hurtling speed of the global market knows no cultural boundaries. Languages, customs, myths and rituals - the building blocks of local culture and identity - are swept aside with the global market's promise of security and prosperity. But is this promise true or false? Is the survival of pockets of local culture true resistance? Can communities reclaim the value of local cultural identity?


Harnessing moving personal testimonies of cultural loss and resistance, Jeremy Seabrook embarks upon a wide-ranging and sensitive exploration of the battleground between local and global.


Paperback; 175 mm x 175 mm. 296 pages. Colour plates.
