Описание:Gender and Power in Affluent Asia is the first major study to provide analysis of the relationships between gender and power that have accompanied the rise of Asian affluence. The book prompts a series of questions about the links between gender, modernity and globalization in the region and pursues two major themes: gender relations are central to the making of the middle classes and modernity in the region; and representations of gender occupy a central place in the contests about meanings and identities accompanying these processes. This is an innovative work that provides coverage of a complex topic that has often been neglected. It gives more than just analysis of Asian women, it demonstrates the central importance of gender in the modernizing and globalizing of Asia.
