From Civilization to Nation-State
This groundbreaking collection is the first of its kind to examine China studies from a perspective that is not Western.The book is a report of the first stage of findings on how views on China and the intellectual history of China studies have been embedded in India’s modern history and its evolving self-knowledge as a nation-state. The rise of India and China has caused intellectuals of both countries to become increasingly conscious of each other.
Challenges and Opportunities
As the debate over the benefits of globalization continues unabated, there is a need for public relations scholarship to engage in that debate by challenging existing paradigms and theories. This book outlines not only a wide ranging set of issues raised by globalization in postcolonial nations, it ties those issues to public relations campaigns that are both alleviating and exacerbating those issues.
A Textual Archaeology of the Yi jing
This highly unique study focuses on the archaic core of the Classic of Changes and proposes a structural anthropological analysis for two reasons. First, unlike many treatments of the Yi jing, there is a concern to place the text carefully in the context of the ancient culture which created it. Second, the approach differs from traditional exegesis which did not and ultimately could not address problems of textual understanding in a holistic sense. This book is not a translation of the Classic of Changes; it is a careful interpretation, or rather method of exploration, of the connectivities and topography of the text as a whole.
National Innovation and the Transformation of a Region
China, South Korea, Taiwan and Japan are more than prominent players in the new digital economy. As a collective force, East Asia dominates the global digital shift, producing much of the technology that underpins global digital integration and, now, establishing a steadily expanding presence in terms of digital content. This book argues that the underappreciated scale of East Asian activity in this key sector is setting up the region as a global leader in the new economy, quietly building global dominance in manufacturing, digital implementations and, most recently, digital content production.
