The movement of ideas and values implicit in the concept of globalization is mediated through four primary channels – the international business elite, the international intelligentsia, popular trend‐based culture, and transnational movements (notably religious in character). All emphasize the superiority of the individual over the traditional and collective. The contributions to this book illustrate wide variations between countries, both in the way globalization is being mediated and experienced and in the character of the opposition it provokes.
