Summary
"This book's central question, therefore, is this: How is Western capitalism embedded (as anthropologist Robert Hefner [1998], following sociologist Mark Granovetter [1985], puts it) in newer Asian contexts? The studies in this book assume that how Western capitalism embeds itself is not separate from but indeed dependent upon first, socio-political relationships, and second, cultural meaning. That is, even though the logic of capitalism - especially since the 1980s in its 'neo-liberal' incarnation - can be outlined, local conditions will dictate that capitalism will spread in ways that will proceed but not be entirely consonant with its various Western origins."--Introduction
