Editorial Reviews

Review

"The book will be appreciated by modern Asian scholars....Goody's presentation is compact yet informative, provocative, and at the same time elegant. The author certainly brings freshness into a timeworn dialogue. The reading list at the end of the book is admirable." Arun Das Gupta International History Review

"This book should be read by every social scientist and historian who is concerned about the problem of Eurocentrism. It should be assigned to students in a wide range of courses in history, sociology, geography, and of course anthropology. This book is important." Science & Society

"This book should be read by every social scientist and historian who is concerned about the problem of Eurocentrism." J.M. Blaut, Science & Society

Book Description

In reassessing Western views of Asia, which much European history and social theory has seen as "static" or "backward", this text challenges Eurocentric assumptions, including the notion of a special Western rationality, differences in mercantile activity and the role of the family.
