Summary
  • "This lively and original book changes the way we see globalization and the knowledge economy. Creativity, exchange and the open flow of ideas have long shaped states, economies and everyday life. But knowledge now has an extraordinary dynamism. The world is crisscrossed by traffic in people, data and images. A world society is emerging, though governance is yet to reflect this. Global Creation shows that global creativity is transforming in two ways. First, global synchrony and convergence are changing the conception, production and sharing of creative work and this is feeding back into the core sturctures of the social world. Second, the global dimension is itself a human product and one that is continually being created. This book explores acts of imagining, producing and regulating the global dimension of action in the past, present and future. It will interest all intelligent readers, particularly those engaged with the history of ideas, political economy, sociology, innovation, or business organization. It follows Creativity and the Global Knowledge Economy (Peters, Marginson, Murphy, 2009),also published by Peter Lang."--Book jacket
  • "As policymakers turn increasingly to issues of creativity and innovation in seeking the sources of value in the global knowledge society, this superb book provides fertile ground for thinkers of all kinds."--Roger King, Visiting Research Professor, Centre for Higher Education Research and Information, Open University, United Kingdom
  • "This is the best attempt so for to interrogate the global dimension of higher education. It is thought-provoking and directed to the key points, with an air of enchantment."--Rui Yang, Director of the Comparative Education Research Centre, University of Hong Kong, China
  • "Marginson, Murphy and Peters have created a tour de force on globalization. The authors perform a narrative high wire act for the readers, and we come away thrilled, wanting more."--Willam G. Tierney, Professor, University of Southern California, Los Angeles
