About the Author

Peter Burke, Professor Emeritus of Cultural History, Cambridge University


"Would work extremely well in world or European history courses at the advanced undergraduate or graduate level." European History Quarterly "[K]nowledgeable and informative." Times Literary Supplement "The book's easy and discursive style makes it accessible to the widest readership without losing out on complexity and intellectual rigour." Sociology "Burke shows how [questions of hybridity] raise issues that are older, broader and closer to our lives than we might think." Times of Malta "An impressive wide-ranging survey of the different forms and practices of cultural interaction in human history, and of the concepts that we now use to try to understand them. Whether we embrace these influences or resist them, globalization, Burke argues, is leading to the emergence of a new cultural order. This book offers us an indispensible guide to the cultural transformations of our times." Robert J.C. Young, New York University "An inspiring and illuminating survey of this highly topical and important field. Burke wears his outstanding erudition very lightly, and seeks to inform and enlighten his readers rather than to impress or browbeat them. He manages to encompass, in this brief survey, a wealth of historical roots and ramifications both within and outside Europe, and maintain analytical clarity at all times. Burke's rigorous, but never rigid, clarity of thought is always flexibly attuned to the complexities of historical experience." J. Th. Leerssen, University of Amsterdam
