Transnational Professionals and their Cosmopolitan Universes

With a foreword by Ulrich Beck
This book focuses on the relationship between physical space and social mobility, focusing on the new phenomenon of the “international professional” who makes the world his home. Mobile people, Magdalena Nowicka reveals, create their own spatial and cultural universes through daily routines and practices. Even the choice of a specific residence, Nowicka shows, has definite local and global consequences. Grounded in the influential theories of Ulrich Beck as well as the latest research in the sociology of space, Transnational Professionals and their Cosmopolitan Universes is an important contribution to continuing debates on globalization and sociology.
