This book explores the way that forms of economic policymaking are sustained and challenged by everyday practices across Southeast Asia.
The perception of Central Asia and its place in the world has come to be shaped by its large oil and gas reserves. Literature on energy in the region has thus largely focused on related geopolitical issues and national policies. However, little is known about citizens’ needs within this broader context of commodities that connect the energy networks of China, Russia and the West. This multidisciplinary special issue brings together anthropologists, economists, geographers and political scientists to examine the role of all forms of energy (here: oil, gas, hydropower and solar power) and their products (especially electricity) in people’s daily lives throughout Central Asia and the Caucasus. The papers in this issue ask how energy is understood as an everyday resource, as a necessity and a source of opportunity, a challenge or even as an indicator of exclusionary practices. We enquire into the role and views of energy sector workers, rural consumers and urban communities, and their experiences of energy companies’ and national policies. We further examine the legacy of Soviet and more recent domestic energy policies, the environmental impact of energy use as well as the political impact of citizens’ energy grievances. This book was published as a special issue of Central Asian Survey.

Photographic study of the Buddhist stupas - domed edifices housing Buddhist or Jain relics. The stupa is the living embodiment of Buddhist teachings - 'a sermon in stone brick and mortar' - and is one of the oldest and most persistent religious symbols still in everyday use. The photos are accompanied by a narration that explains the symbolism, rituals and mystic power associated with these monuments, from their origins in India and their migration throughout Asia, covering 11 countries from Sri Lanka to Japan. Foreword by Robert A F Thurman, the first Westerner to be ordained a Tibetan Buddhist monk by the Dalai Lama and president of Tibet House in New York. Includes full colour throughout, transparent overlays, glossary and index. Author has a master's degree in Asian art history and has contributed to more than 35 guidebooks and phrase books. Wassman has been photographing Asia since 1975 and has been awarded the PATA Gold Award for his work in Nepal.
Asian American Religions brings together some of the most current research on Asian American religions from a social science perspective. The volume focuses on religion in Asian American communities in New York, Houston, Los Angeles, and the Silicon Valley/Bay Area, and it includes a current demographic overview of the various Asian populations across the United States. It also provides information on current trends, such as that Filipino and Korean Americans are the most religiously observant people in America, that over 60 percent of Asian Americans who have a religious identification are Christian, and that one-third of Muslims in the United States are Asian Americans. Rather than organizing the book around particular ethnic groups or religions, Asian American Religions centers on thematic issues, like symbols and rituals, political boundaries, and generation gaps, in order to highlight the role of Asian American religions in negotiating, accepting, redefining, changing, and creating boundaries in the communities' social life.
