emerging asia flyer picture

Asia is often viewed through a fog of superlatives: the most populous countries, lowest fertility rates, fastest growing economies, greatest number of billionaires, most avid consumers, and greatest threat to the world’s environment. This recounting of superlatives obscures Asia’s sheer diversity, uneven experience, and mixed inheritance.

Amsterdam University Press’s Transforming Asia series publishes books that explore, describe, interpret, understand and, where appropriate, problematize and critique contemporary processes of transformation and their outcomes. The core aim of the series is to finesse ‘Asia’, both as a geographical category and to ask what Asia’s ‘rise’ means globally and regionally, from conceptual models to policy lessons.
