He then leaves the defence of the geographical region so defined, and moves on to the discussion about the nature of cultural politics and of Asian values. The author has chosen to discuss Asian values in terms of the major religions that should have influenced these values. He makes a grand sweep from Catholicism to Protestantism, through Judaism, Islam, and Buddhism and also includes philosophies such as Confucianism.
The introduction and debate on the different religions provide the discursive direction in which a major effort is made to establish the relative strengths of individualism and collective interests. The discussion about the origins and influence of the different religions may seem daunting but the author has to his credit written consistently in a highly readable and engaging manner. Certainly readers who prefer a simple and clearly written introduction to the religions that have influenced politics in the region will appreciate this book.
Yet religion alone is not culture in its entirety and the cultural politics that have been seen in Asia are not merely about religious affiliation. Given the significant fact that several Asian countries make an express effort to keep governments secular, one has to wonder just [End Page ] how strongly religion has been influencing governmental outlook in the region. In his discussion on different religions and their influence, the author also moves over nations and regions in a breathtaking sweep. It is not patently clear if the religions and religious values discussed scale the entire Asian region or if they divide the leadership and societies in each country into cultures that then contribute to the politics in the region.
The discussion does not fully engage the material aspects of governance in Asia, that is, the division of economic benefits as well as the issues that have since the economic crisis given reasons to question the relevance of Asian values. Given the cronyism, nepotism and corruption that have been exposed with the collapse of long-standing regimes like that of Suharto's in Indonesia, major proponents of Asian values have generally been silent on whether these values would subsequently bail Asian countries out of their political and economic troubles.
