Summary
"This book is set in the conceptual context of the current debate, in social theory, around the existence of varieties of modernity. Ibrahim Kaya argues that, rather than understanding the contemporary social world in terms of a shift from modernity to postmodernity, we should read the plurality of cultural worlds in terms of multiple modernities. He also argues that, crucially, the process of modernization cannot be simply understood as 'Westernization'; rather, social theorists should analyse the ways in which specific historical, cultural and civilizational contexts create particular versions of modernity."--BOOK JACKET
