Based on the highly successful NZASIA conference held at the University of Otago in November 1999, this volume contains some thirty out of over a hundred papers that were presented. 'Nationalism' was perceived in its widest sense, affecting cultural, ethnic, religious and political issues and attracted speakers from Asia, Europe and North America as well as Australasia. The papers published here are divided into two groupings: Globalization in Asia and Nationalist Responses. Topics include: Government Intervention and Economic Growth in East Asia, Agricultural Nationalism in the Age of Globalization, Japan's Dominance and Multi-Racial Coalitions in Malaysia.
