Title Details
Creative Destruction by Cowen, Tyler
Creative Destruction: How Globalization Is Changing the World's Cultures
by Cowen, Tyler
 
Through an array of colorful examples, Cowen asks what happens when cultures collide through trade, whether technology destroys native arts, why (and whether) Hollywood movies rule the world, and if national cultures matter at all. Scrutinizing such manifestations of "indigenous" culture as the steel band ensembles of Trinidad, Indian handweaving, and music from Zaire, Cowen finds that they are more vibrant than ever -- thanks largely to cross-cultural trade.
