Negotiating Globalization In Asia
|Author||Ateneo Center for Asian Studies|
|Dimension||6 x 9|
This volume gathers the papers delivered during the Ateneo Center for Asian Studies 2004 conference on nationalism and globalization in the Asian context, which eventually evolved into the present collection. Through the academic disciplines of economics, sociology, philosophy, and art and cultural studies, the authors describe and discuss different ways by which globalization is negotiated in Asia. Liberalization, borderlessness and mobility are affirmed to be the major characteristics of globalization. They have both positive and negative impacts on the lives of the people. That national governments and even local customs and traditions are far from being submerged in the global arrangements and transactions has also been affirmed, even if on the contrary, they do and can play roles in mitigating the negative impacts of globalization.
