This volume examines the challenges posed by globalization to the meanings we currently give to place and to culture, and questions the nature of the relationship between them. Issues of identity--cultural, personal, and of place--and the meaning of places and cultures are set in the context
of the changing geography of social power. Beginning with international migration, the book establishes a centuries-old context of movement, settlement, and hybridity within which current debates must be set. It raises issues of the rights of movement of both capital and of people, and of the power
struggle over the definitions of place and culture. It examines the importance and nature of the identities we confer upon place, and the significance of space and place in the constitution of insiders' and outsiders'.
