A book launch discussion and Q&A session for the publication of Asian Nationalisms Reconsidered (Routledge 2016). Edited by Jeff Kingston, Director of Asian Studies, Temple University Japan Campus. Nationalism appears to be a growing risk in a renascent 21st century Asia, stoking tensions, aspirations, and identity politics while amplifying grievances and raising questions about prospects in what is touted as the Asian century. This edited collection of 22 chapters provides a broad overview of nationalism in Asia, including country case studies and thematic analysis. Leading experts in their fields succinctly convey key insights and critical analysis useful to understanding the dynamics and variations of nationalism across the region.
