Pressestimmen

"[Iwabuchi's] detailed discussion, articulated in terms of the latest cultural and globalization theories, is very illuminating. Offering, as it does, a challenge to the notion that 'global' really means 'the West', this book is highly recommended as course reading for both Japanese and Media Studies."--Mark McLelland , M/C Reviews "[A]n engaging and timely book. Its focus on Japan and Asia in the context of debates about Western-centric globalization processes is fresh and welcome... [Iwabuchi] has written a fascinating, well-researched, and original book."--Matthew Allen, Journal of Asian Studies "Recentering Globalization offers a rich and complex understanding of cultural flows between Japan and other parts of Asia-primarily Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore-and provides a valuable perspective on studies of globalization that have been centered around Europe and the U.S... It ... will appeal to a broad range of readers in business administration and cultural studies."--Joshua Hotaka Roth, Journal of Asian Business "Iwabuchi offers a powerful critique to the 'cultural imperialism' thesis by allowing for the importance of audience reception... [T]his is a refreshing and original book by a Japanese intellectual. More the hope that it will speedily enter into a popular press Japanese translation."--Geoffrey C. Gunn, Journal of Contemporary Asia F[F]ascinating... [T]he book is well worth a read."--Brian Moeran, Copenhagen Journal of Asian Studies Abstract in Business Horizons. Also reviewed in Asahi Shimbun/International Herald Tribune, CHE and boundary 2. Featured in Asia-Pacific Perspectives
