The paper compares and contrasts two articles on globalization. The paper looks at their contexts, writing styles, intents and layout. The paper explains that Broswimmer's article "Ecocide and Globalization" is concerned with the "big picture" when it comes to globalization and in stark, accessible language, he sounds a wake-up call. The paper contrasts this to Tomlinson's article "Globalization and Culture" that addresses only one aspect of globalization, with the text not being accessible to all.
From the Paper:"The first thing to note when comparing these two articles is the context. Tomlinson's article is the first chapter of a book called Globalization and Culture. Thus, we know that the context is to introduce and frame an examination of this narrow aspect of globalization. Tomlinson acknowledges that his account is not multidimensional, but at the same time asserts that an account of merely the cultural "slice" of globalization does not have to be one dimensional - and indeed, he does a very good job of relating this one dimension to the wider reality of globalization."
