Ближний Север в контексте мировых трендов (вопросы теории)

С. 451-485.
Покровский Н. Е., Николаева У. Г.

For an objective assessment and prediction of the actual processes taking place in the Middle North, need to see broad panoramas and further prospects of a global trend in which the Near North necessarily built - with more or less success. These trends in the world, despite their apparent distance from the local rural communities and small towns penetrate into local life, modifying it from within. This is the general logic of social change in the world. "Cell" structure of society (small community, everyday practices, traditional and new values, personal biographies of people) is not isolated from the highest levels of the social system. "Cells" carry a large reflection and logic processes. Economic relations, trade (international brands), migration (circulation of the population), information communications (cellular, Internet, satellite TV) - all in one form or another goes to each, arbitrarily small "cell" of society, modifying it. In this sense, trends in world development most directly refracted in reflections of small, local communities. However, the course of globalization has demonstrated a much more complex picture of social change in the world and in some communities: a modernization, linear upward trend appeared not the only brighter processes manifest themselves counter-modernization, counter-globalization and archaism.
