Koichi Hasegawa and Naoki Yoshihara eds, Globalization, Minorities and Civil Society: Perspectives from Asian and Western Cities Paperback
Price: $59.95

One effect of globalization has been urban restructuring in various cities of Asia, increasing migration from Asia to European cities and the intensification of debates about citizenship. The multi-dimensional constellations of ethnic minorities in Asian and European cities have become increasingly divided, stratified and segmented. The post-colonial legacy permeates these phenomena. This book examines developments in Asia and Europe on the basis of fieldwork surveys, examining anti-globalization movements and minority group dissent at the local level, and their effects on civil society. Chapters include studies of the homeless in Manila, Thai-Chinese residents in Bangkok, Islam in Bali and the Bangladesh community in London.
