Book Review: The New Individualism

Christine Doran

    Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate


    A recent book, first published in 2005, which works from the premise that globalization is still very much alive is Anthony Elliott and Charles Lemert's The New Individualism: The Emotional Costs of Globalization. Not only is globalization still alive, but according to Elliott and Lemert it is set to intensify in its effects, which on the whole they see as negative and damaging for people's lives. Under the broad sign of globalization, the authors include, for instance, 'the speed of travel, the ease of communication, the multicultural politics of the world, the new transnational economic markets' (19). The study concentrates mainly, though not exclusively, on the impact of globalization in the United States and Britain.
