Offering a new framework for the cultural study of globalization, "Modernity at Large" shows how the imagination works as a social force in today's world, providing new resources for identity and energies for creating alternatives to the nation-state, whose era some see as coming to an end. Appadurai examines the current epoch of globalization, which is characterized by the twin forces of mass migration and electronic mediation, and provides fresh ways of looking at popular consumption patterns, debates, about multiculturalism, and ethnic violence. He considers the way images -of lifestyles, popular culture, and self-representacion- circulate internationally throught the media and are often borrowed in surprising (to their originators) and inventive fashions.
