Chapters 8A and 8B (South Asia), for example, now discusses recent developments in the cultural and religious conflict between Pakistan and India, as well as a more detailed discussion of economic growth and effects of globalization in South Asia.
  • New “Voice From the Region” feature, in every chapter. Each essay showcases the local perspective of an individual who resides in the realm.
  • Many new photographs and field notes, taken by co-author Jan Nijman while doing fieldwork.
