Summary

The tension between culture, politics and economy has become one of the dominant anxieties of modern society. On the one hand people endeavor to maintain and develop their distinct cultural identity; on the other there are many forces for greater international integration, driven by free trade and political cooperation. How to understand and explain this fundamental issue is illuminated in nine essays by eminent scholars from various countries and disciplines.
