Reviews

“This volume has been carefully edited to ensure authors address historical as well as contemporary issues, and consider the perspectives of other nations. It offers a welcome clarification of social transformations shared, but distinctive, between near neighbours on both international and local scales. Readers will find clear arguments for local considerations as the Asia region expands its influence and its interpretation of globalizing processes.” (Nancy Pollock, Pacific Affairs, Vol. 90 (2), June, 2017)
