Summary

The Asian century is in full swing, generating unprecedented economic and social power. In coming decades this will profoundly change the world, and the lives of all those living in the world's most populous region. New Asia Now features outstanding young writers from the countries at the centre of this transformation. They write about the people and places they know with passion, flair and insight. This unique collection takes a journey through the region's diversity with a new generation of literary stars, who will shape the way we understand the complexities of culture, politics and modernisation. All born after 1970, our contributors are cultural agenda-setters who explore issues of identity and belonging in the new world that is unfolding. Featuring Murong Xuecan (China), Joshua Ip (Singapore), Annie Zaidi (India), Miguel Syjuco (Phillipines), Sheng Keyi (China), Maggie Tiojakin (Indonesia) and many more.
