Asia: Cultural Politics in the Global Age
David Birch Tony Schirato Sanjay Srivastava
Price: $ 19.95

This concise introduction to contemporary Asian societies goes beyond the clichés and stereotypes to explore the cultural dynamics of the region. Bringing together a range of excellent "Asian" experiences, the authors show that there is no one "Asian" culture. They explore the impact of the colonial era and examine how current global trends intersect with local traditions and histories. Drawing upon recent advances in critical communication and cultural studies, the authors survey the politics of the information age, religion, the position of women, sexuality, and ethnic identity. With examples from countries across the region, Asia provides the tools needed to recognize, understand, and discuss Asian cultures and cultural difference.
