Market Cultures: Society and Morality in the New Asian Capitalisms

Synopsis

Market Cultures examines the spectacular growth of capitalist enterprise among overseas Chinese & Southeast Asians. It does so, not through formal models, but by way of the varied cultures & organizations in which Asian capitalism is embedded. Eschewing talk of a uniform Asian "miracle," the book shows that there existed complex precedents for & against market capitalism in East & Southeast Asia, precedents that reflected subcultural heritages of religion, ethnicity, gender, & class. The case studies illuminate a cultural variety unacknowledged in most analyses of modern capitalism but vitally important for anyone wishing to understand one of the great economic transformations of our time.
