Miyoshi, Masao, Harootunian, Harry, Najita, Tetsuo


"Area studies is in crisis, seemingly rendered marginal and anachronistic in a globalizing world. Yet, paradoxically, knowledge of histories, geographies, cultures, ecologies, and geopolitical tensions has become crucial if the public is to understand the dangers as well as the promises of globalization. Miyoshi and Harootunian here assemble a talented group of scholars to probe deeply into this contradiction. They convincingly argue that area studies needs to be completely revamped if not dissolved into new knowledge structures within the academy if it is to fulfill its mission. This challenges all of us to rethink disciplinary allegiances and past ways of knowing in critical as well as constructive ways."-David Harvey, author ofSpaces of Hope and Spaces of CapitalMiyoshi, Masao is the author of 'Learning Places The Afterlives of Area Studies' with ISBN 9780822328407 and ISBN 0822328402.
