    Abstract

    Book synopsis: 'Global village'. 'Empire'. 'Global Marketplace'. 'Network Society'. These metaphors have become so deeply entrenched in discussions of globalization that it is impossible to understand the globalizing world without them. But, how specifically do these metaphors help us make sense of globalization? Metaphors of Globalization inquires into the power and politics of metaphors in the making of our globalizing era. By examining globalization via an analysis of metaphors, this groundbreaking volume sheds new light on an overlooked dimension of global politics, redresses outdated understandings and conceptualizations, and provides a critical analysis of existing approaches to the study of globalization. The contributors provides an interdisciplinary approach, with case studies in global finance, global governance, literary theory, political theory, anthropology and sociology.
