This two-volume set, Regionalism in an Age of Globalism, examines the concept of region and regionalism in today's rapidly shrinking world.
Building on the insights of a diverse group of scholars, the first volume, Concepts of Regionalism, showcases the wide range of theories and methods that are being applied to regionalism today in the humanities and social sciences.
Despite these differences many common themes emerge, most importantly that regions are social and cultural constructs.
The second volume, Forms of Regionalism, expands on these themes by presenting concrete examples of regionalism.
Case studies explore regionalism in literature, governmental policy, architecture, and other fields in areas as diverse as the American South, Pacific Northwest, Eastern Europe, and the Canadian North.
