Overview

Globalization is a defining feature of our times, covering everything from economic and political issues to the spread of American culture. However, its status is controversial, with some viewing it as leading to greater development for all, and others as a threat to national cultures and democratic political life. This book shows how simplified such binary views are and examines how various globalizing forces have affected Asian societies. It discusses the relationship between globalization, identity and democratic developments in Asia both theoretically and empirically, and aims at understanding how economic, political and social forces interact and are mutually reinforced in Asian societies.
