   schema:reviewBody ""The social and economic transformation of Asia has been closely associated with the rise of the new rich. These mostly successful capitalists and salaried professionals have influenced not only the economic changes in the region, but also the cultural restructuring that has accompanied these changes." "Through a range of social settings - village, factory, city, nation, diaspora and region - this book looks at the cultural changes in national, ethnic, religious and class identities. The authors employ case studies from Singapore, China, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand, India and Indonesia and break new ground with their documentation and analyses of privilege in capitalist Asia. The book also employs a strong theoretical component that questions the approaches to be found in other studies of the new rich."--Jacket." ;
