About This Book

Prof. Wang Gungwu, one of Asia's pre-eminent scholars and an authority on overseas Chinese, deliberates on the transformation of Asian societies brought about by technological change and global economic development in this book. The collection of essays here reflects his conviction that although Asians need nation-states to deal with the exigencies of modernisation, the rich heritage of Asian civilisations gathered over the centuries should not be neglected but remain a vital part of the region's well-being. Prof. Wang is currently the Director of the East Asian Institute, National University of Singapore.
