Discourses of Cultural China in the Globalizing Age

This chapter examines the mediated individual globality in five cities of China: Chengdu, Wuhan, Lanzhou, Changchun, and Beijing. The study provides ample evidence that attitude and values changes defining individual globality are accompanied by changes in behavior, which give meaning to, and support those changes in political and economic institutions that lead to the globalization of nations and cultures. It finds that neither rapid economic growth nor effective government can develop without the widespread diffusion to the regular members of the population of those qualities this study has identified as those of the global individual. In the contemporary world, the qualities of an individual globality are a vital necessity.

Keywords:   globalization, Chengdu, Wuhan, Lanzhou, Changchun, Beijing, geopolitical context
