Summary:
"The central metaphor in globalization: an Asian perspective on modernity and politics in America is partly constructed out of Michel Foucault's metaphor of the Ship of Fools in Madness and Civilization (1965). Building on Foucault's argument, the three themes of hope, progress and optimism as used in this book represent idiomatic expressions of the business of modernity that have developed since the time of the Industrial Revolution in the West." "With this in mind, this book has been designed for upper level undergraduates, graduate students and readers who are interested in contemporary political theory."--BOOK JACKET.
