Reviews

"One rarely finds scholars who have an overview of the use of culture concepts in all fields. Seeing Culture Everywhere deals with academic and non-academic materials in a balance and to a degree that is a rare achievement." Ulf Hannerz, Stockholm University "This delightful book needed to be written, and Breidenbach and Nyiri have done the job admirably. Seeing Culture Everywhere is so much more readable and comprehensive than anything I've seen in the field."--Thomas Hylland Eriksen, University of Oslo "In Seeing Culture Everywhere, Pal Nyiri and Joana Breidenbach present a well-argued discussion about the relevance of culture in society today. They argue that culture is often seen as static and unchanging, locked within particular borders... Nyiri and Breidenbach wrote this book to provide an alternative view to the intercultural approach, which, they point out, has its faults. Their work is an excellent introduction about the importance of culture, showing how culture matters and how to actively engage with it. It is a valuable contribution to the discourse on culture, and provides useful insights about engaging with culture in everyday life as well as in business and politics." - Shannon Carr, H-Genocide, February 2013
