A Global Conceptual History of Asia, 1860-1940

Research output: Book/anthology/dissertation/reportAnthologyResearchpeer-review

Contributors to this volume explore the changing concepts of the social and the economic during a period of fundamental change across Asia. Case studies show how adopting Western words reflected regional concepts of economy and society. Overall, contributors challenge accepted explanations of how Western knowledge spread through Asia and show how versatile Asian intellectuals were in introducing European concepts and in blending them with local traditions.
