In this timely volume, M. Parvizi Amineh brings together a multitude of studies of modern Asian postcolonial states and societies. This part of the world has undergone major transitions over the past decade and is quickly becoming a major player in international policy and the global economy. Grounded in the most recent scholarship, State, Society and International Relations in Asia covers several large-scale global concerns, including nationalism, democratization, corruption, religious tension, globalization, and regionalization.
