Writing Future Worlds : An Anthropologist Explores Global Scenarios Hardback
by Ulf Hannerz
Part of the Palgrave Studies in Literary Anthropology series
This volume presents a comprehensive analysis of global future scenarios and their impact on a growing, shared culture.
Ever since the end of the Cold War, a diverse range of future concepts has emerged in various areas of academia-and even in popular journalism.
A number of these key concepts-`the end of history,' `the clash of civilizations,' `the coming anarchy,' `the world is flat,' `soft power,' `the post-American century'-suggest what could become characteristic of this new, interconnected world.
Ulf Hannerz scrutinizes these ideas, considers their legacy, and suggests further dialogue between authors of the `American scenario' and commentators elsewhere.
