How useful is the idea of Asia? Is the term misleading when used as arubric for so many different countries, cultures and peoples? What aboutAustralia? In what sense is Australia in Asia? Australia in Asia: Communities ofThought provides a response to these questions rather than simply focusing onthe economic structures and processes of the region, it expands the debate toconsider Asia in terms of communities of thought.Introductions to seven societies in the Asian region are provided by leadingAustralian scholars: Geremie Barme on China; Leith Morton on Japan; James Cottonon Korea; Craig Reynolds on Thailand; David Reeves on Indonesia; Anthony Milneron Malaysia; and Judith Brett on Australia. Each attempts to characterise thesociety concerned, discussing not only its dominant world-views, concepts, andvalues, but also how each is challenged. Together, these chapters point to thecultural complexity and dynamism of Asia, and to the cultural assertivenessencountered in many parts of the region. Like the two other volumes in theAustralia in Asia series, this book will remind the reader that, in seeking acloser engagement with Asia, Australians have underestimated challenge theyface.Addressed to those interested in the Asian region, this book is particularlyrelevant for readers wanting a clear and comprehensive introduction to one ofthe worlds most dynamic regions.
