Culture and Society in the Asia-Pacific


Culture and Society in the Asia-Pacific examines the tension between tradition and modernity, especially how Western and other Asian cultures have had an impact on traditional cultures, and how the growing economy plays a significant role in how societies are changing. This volume addresses the issues which affect people's everyday lives, including the family, gender relations, religion, the arts, film, ethnic relations, population, migration, education, and images of the Pacific.
