Rejecting simplifying notions of globalisation as a macro-economic force, this book provides a grounded picture of the various ways in which people's biographies are tied up with the global cultural economy. The main argument of the book is that the globalisation of lives is experienced by people as the 'extension' of their 'milieux' both spatially and symbolically.
