“THE VORTEX OF WORLD CIVILIZATION”

“Through the rise of the modern state the parochial principalities of earlier ages have disintegrated and heterogeneous groupings of people and diverse areas have been consolidated into vast political domains.

Through conquest and migration formerly compact groups have become dispersed and split up among different political entities.

Through modern transportation, communication, commerce, and technology the surviving folk cultures are being increasingly drawn into the vortex of world civilization.”

ON CITIES AND SOCIAL LIFE”

Louis Wirth

The University of Chicago Press 1964
