Global culture industry

by Scott Lash | 01 March 2007
PAPERBACK
Synopsis
In the first half of the twentieth century, Theodor Adorno wroteabout the 'culture industry'. For Adorno, culture too along withthe products of factory labour was increasingly becoming acommodity. Now, in what they call the 'global culture industry',Scott Lash and Celia Lury argue that Adorno's worst nightmares havecome true. Their new book tells the compelling story of how materialobjects such as watches and sportswear have become powerfulcultural symbols, and how the production of symbols, in the form ofglobally recognized brands, has now become a central goal ofcapitalism. Global Culture Industry provides an empiricallyand theoretically rich examination of the ways in which theseobjects - from Nike shoes to Toy Story, from global football toconceptual art - metamorphose and move across nationalborders. This book is set to become a dialectic of enlightenment for theage of globalization. It will be essential reading for students andscholars across the social sciences.
