This book reads like a man shouting into an empty hall -- his echo pleases him. Throughout the book, Appadurai blames the victims of terrorism.
Minorities are being hated all across the world today. Minorities, by definition and some implication are a weak entity, the concept having developed out of census work.
The examples cited come from almost all over the world which could make it accessible to an even larger audience. The book is good in the sense that it is neither too deep in theory nor in ethnographic description and charts the middle which makes it accessible to a diverse range of readers. But that is also what is a little disappointing about it. The entire discussion about the world wide nature of a growing sense of anti-americanism is very appealing intuitively but the evidence seems anecdotal.
The book also lacks detail in terms of explaining the economic side of globalization that plays a role in the kind of violence that the same phenomenon is able to carry out.
The book is a great read because of the rhetoric and metaphors at play. But because there are so many case studies, one finds a lack of theoretical discussion about issues like say terrorism which have a very specific set of contexts and issues.
Lastly, the discussion about the positive characteristics of the same side of the phenomenon in the example of collaborating NGOs could have been discussed in further detail. Again, it the very end where the author almost just introduces the theoretical underpinnings of the undertaken and leaves the reader asking for more. The reader who knows Appadurai from having read Modernity at Large will be a tad disappointed.
The well-respected academic has pointed us to a very interesting and important side of globalization that not many of us are aware of.
