Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Transformation of the Intimate and the Public in Asian Modernity contains the table of contents, the preface, and a list of figures and tables. The book presents a substantial conceptualization of the phenomena of Asian modernity from the viewpoint of the reconstruction of the intimate and public spheres. It captures at the same time both the changes in the private lives of individuals and families and the transformation of wider social settings, such as labour market reconstruction, the changing roles of the state and civil society, and the overwhelming trends of globalization, based on the conviction that they are profoundly intertwined with each other.

Keywords: Asian modernity; families; lives of individuals; wider social settings
