About

Overview

Today’s modern age of globalization is creating commonalities throughout the people of the world: Chinese food is eaten in South America, Fanta is enjoyed in South Africa, and Australians can purchase Swedish furniture. Western influences, particularly from American culture, have seeped into other countries and changed local standards, tastes, and preferences. While some may believe this homogenization is a good thing, others are concerned that it will forever change the cultural contributions that special, individual communities can offer the world. One World or Many? uses historical and real-world examples to highlight the debate on the pros and cons of globalization.
