Capitalism and Modernity: The Great Debate, Goody, Jack , 2004///, Issue Cambridge,, Malden, MA, p.200, (2004)

This book investigates how the West attained its current position of economic and social advantage. In an incisive historical analysis, Jack Goody examines when and why Europe (and Anglo-America) started to outstrip all other continents in socio-economic growth. Drawing on non-Western examples of economic and technical progress, Goody challenges assumptions about long-term European supremacy of a 'cultural' kind, as was a feature of many theories current in social science. He argues that the divergence came with the Industrial Revolution and that the earlier bourgeois revolution of the sixteenth century was but one among many Eurasia-wide expressions of developing mercantile and manufacturing activity.

Chinese Capitalism in a Global Era: Towards Hybrid Capitalism, Yeung,Henry Wai-Chung , 2004///, Issue London, p. - 295, (2004)

Yeung's study demystifies the nature and dynamics of 'overseas' Chinese capitalism in East and Southeast Asia in a time of accelerated globalization. He examines how Chinese capitalism has evolved in a two way process through the participation of its key actors.

Chinese Intellectuals Between State and Market, Goldman, Merle; Gu, Edward X. , 2004///, New York and London, p.304, (2004)

This edited volume highlights how Chinese intellectual activity has become more wide-ranging, more independent, more professionalized and more commercially oriented than ever before.

Democratization and Identity: Regimes and Ethnicity in East and Southeast Asia, Henders, Susan J. , 2004///, Lanham, MD, p.276, (2004)

The contributors introduce the experiences of East and Southeast Asia into the study of democratization in ethnically (including religiously) diverse societies. This collection suggests that the risk of ethnicized conflict, exclusion, or hierarchy during democratization depends in large part on the nature of the ethnic identities and relations constituted during authoritarian rule. This volume's theoretical breakthroughs and its country case studies shed light on the prospects for ethnically inclusive and non-hierarchical democratization across East and Southeast Asia and beyond.

Football Goes East: Business, Culture, and the People's Game in China, Japan, Manzenreiter,Wolfram.; Horne,John , 2004///, p. - 264, (2004)

Global popular culture and big business have revolutionized the East in a generation. British football, sport of the masses and now commercial super power, has travelled with this tide of change in the East in its own right.

The development of British football as a major participatory sport in Japan, Korea, and China makes it a fascinating case study for analysis of the complex relationship between sport, culture, society, and economy in the East. The sport is also a useful entry point for examination of the phenomena of increasing globalization, and this theme is widely discussed.

Filial Piety: Practice and Discourse in Contemporary East Asia, Ikels,Charlotte , 2004///, p. - 320, (2004)

How has rapid economic development and the aging of the population affected the expression of filial piety in East Asia? Eleven experienced fieldworkers take a fresh look at an old idea, analyzing contemporary behavior, not norms, among both rural and urban families in China, Korea, Japan, and Taiwan.

Transforming Korean Politics: Democracy, Reform, and Culture, Kihl,Young W. , 2004///, p. - 384, (2004)

Over the past twenty years, South Korea has transformed itself from an authoritarian government into a new democracy with a vibrant capitalist economy. Modernization, democratization, and globalization have played an important role in this transformation, and have greatly influenced the programs and policies of Korea's Sixth Republic. Covering developments through the 2004 elections, this book shows how the South Korean government and society have been shaped not only by the dynamics of these forces, but also by their interaction with the cultural norms of post-Confucian society.

Television Across Asia: Television Industries, Programme Formats and Globalization, Moran, Albert; Keane, Michael , 2004///, Issue London, p.222, (2004)

This book explores the trade in television program formats, which is a crucially important ingredient in the globalisation of culture in Asia. It examines how much traffic there is in program formats, the principle direction of flow of such traffic, and the economic and cultural significance of this trade for territories involved as well as the region as a whole. It shows how new technology, deregulation, privatization and economic recession have greatly intensified competition between broadcasters in Asia, as in other parts of the world, and discusses how this in turn has multiplied the incidence of television format remakes with some countries developing dedicated format compaines, and others becoming net importers and adapters of formats.

Financial Derivatives and the Globalization of Risk , LiPuma, Edward; Lee, Benjamin , Durham, NC, (2004)

This book is a primer on financial globalization, specifically the emergence and operation of a particular set of complicated financial instruments that the authors see as signaling a far-reaching transformation of the domain conventionally referred to as “the economy:” derivatives. While derivatives have sometimes entered into public consciousness due to scandal, crises, and crime, the authors use derivatives as a window into the new everyday operations of global capital and the new normalcy of “systemic risk”—the risk that the entire international financial and banking architecture may implode.
