Modern Indian Culture and Society
Edited by Knut A. Jacobsen
Research on Indian culture and society has been conducted from a dizzying range of perspectives. However, in recent decades it has been particularly characterized by a change in focus from the past to the present; from the worldview of the élites to that of the subalterns; from philosophy to everyday life; and from hierarchy to the critiques of hierarchy and the sources of equality in Indian culture.
Edited by Xinzhong Yao, Tu Weiming
It is difficult, if not totally impossible, to define what we call ‘Confucianism’ in terms of any of the disciplines we are used to in the West, and contemporary scholars tend to see it as a historical and yet living tradition containing elements of philosophy, religion, politics, morality, and education, continuing to hold significant power over the way and value of life in East Asia.
The Chinese Overseas
Routledge Library of Modern China
Edited by Hong Liu
With a population of more than thirty million, the Chinese living outside of the mainland, and in Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan constitute an important force in the socio-economic transformation of modern China, and they have also played a significant role in the interactions between China and the nations in which they reside. Viewed from the perspective of international migration, the Chinese Overseas are one of the most dynamic immigrant groups in the world, contributing to globalization and multi-culturalism on a huge scale.
