Summary "This book responds to calls for an area studies that shakes off the shackles of orientalist legacy, but retains the close reading of local processes. All of the authors, from different perspectives, challenge the boundaries of China and its study, but believe that area studies have a role to play if their geographies are problematized. Together, the chapters shape an area studies that is equally sensitive to flows as it is to boundaries." "The book is intended for scholars at the beginning of their research careers, but policymakers needing a critical view of Asian studies will also find it useful. Its self-contained design allows even those whose access to resources on disciplinary knowledge and methodology is limited to make fruitful use of it."--BOOK JACKET
