BeschreibungIn this collection of 10 essays, authors from a range of Asian studies and New Zealand-related disciplines explore how the burgeoning Asian population in New Zealand affects New Zealanders' understanding of Asia and how it alters the way that Asians see their own identity. This book identifies the historical and contemporary impact of Asia on New Zealand culture, celebrates cultural diversity, and offers a practical understanding of the Asian diaspora. Historical links between many Asian countries and New Zealand are considered as well as Asian aspects of contemporary "kiwi" culture, including the Indonesian gamelan, identity in India, Muslim traditions, and Chinese and Korean use of the media.
