Culture no longer has borders. With the advent of internet sites like Sothebys.com and the increasing reality of globalization, culture itself has gone global. This collection focuses on questions involving national identity, indigenous culture, economic growth, free trade, cultural policy, and global tourism. "Global Culture" looks at all aspects of the "arts" including: film, art, music, theatre, television, and museums. It expands on how current cultural policies are working and forecasts what we can expect the future landscape of global culture to look like.
