Abstract

The globalization thesis today is often accompanied by a wide range of debates about global transformations. Other relevant issues, such as the structure of multinational/ transnational corporations, world politics and the international economic crisis are all central to these debates. Books about globalization are more likely to be written by mainstream political-economy analysts and social scientists. Fewer writings and references come from academics with a profound knowledge of theories of literature and philosophy. Combining both literary language and philosophical interpretations, Chang Hsiao-Hung's book Fake Globalization critically examines the globalization discourse in terms of its complex historical process and hybridity.
