The book also considers how globalization has transformed class and gender in India. Derne argues that with globalization, class identities are defined more by transnational contexts than within bounded nations, are based more on shared patterns of consumption than shared positions in the economy, and are increasingly defined by gender relations.
Globalization on the Ground will appeal to students and scholars of globalization, mass media, cultural studies, and South Asian studies.
