Asia in the Making of New Zealand

New or Used: 2 copies from $43.00
Asia in the Making of New Zealand is a thoughtful and illuminating discussion of the rapidly changing, creative and dynamic multicultural society in which we now live. Five chapters consider historical links between New Zealand and various Asian countries; five look at Asian aspects of our contemporary kiwi culture, from the Indonesian gamelan, Indian identity, Muslim traditions as exemplified in the 'burqa' case, to Chinese and Korean use of the media. Asian issues are an increasingly important area of study for academics, local community groups and public policy makers alike, and by identifying the historical and contemporary impact of Asia on kiwi culture, this book celebrates cultural diversity and offers practical insight and understanding of the Asian diaspora in New Zealand.
