About This Book

This book is a compilation of expert contributions that chart the cultural flows and consumption across different regions in Asia, and the importance of these flows in creating contemporary Asian national identities. It offers innovative possibilities for envisioning how the transfer of popular and consumer culture, such as TV, music, film, advertising and commodities across Asian countries has produced a new form of cross-cultural fertilisation within Asian societies, and which does not merely copy their Western counterparts. This volume is unique in its investigation of how "Asianness" is being exploited by Asian transnational cultural industries and how it is involved in the new power relations of the region.
