Description

The Japanese impact on Southeast Asia has been profound, not only in terms of economic presence, but equally in terms of an increasingly visible cultural presence. Food, fashion, TV, film, religion, sport, popular music, ideas about management and social relationships and even local literatures have been profoundly impacted by the flows of cultural influences from Japan. This volume examines these flows and their consequences in Singapore, a Southeast Asian society in which the Japanese presence is so visible as to make it a regional paradigm for a study of cultural influence in the region.

Reviews

'Gives a good insight into the thematic field of culture contact under globalization.' - Internationales Asienforum

'A refreshing contribution … thematically coherent and conceptually sophisticated [it] has effectively highlighted many of the paradoxes, contradictions and fault-lines in Japan's relations with her neighbours in East Asia.' - Asian Studies Review
