As Asia has become more prominent on the international scene in recent decades--economically, politically, and culturally--the scholarly discipline of Asian studies has grown commensurately. But major questions remain about the scope of the discipline and its goals. "What about Asia"? both surveys the current state of the debate on Asian studies and suggests several fruitful directions for future exploration, especially through the use of multiregional and interdisciplinary approaches.Stremmelaar, Josine is the author of 'What About Asia? Asian Studies Revisited', published 2007 under ISBN 9789053569597 and ISBN 9053569596.
