Item description for Time Matters: Global and Local Time in Asian Societies by H. Schulte Nordholt & H. Van Schendel...
Comparing how different cultures record and consider duration of space and years, this book specifically examines the emerging social conventions and meanings of time in Asian societies. This study explores representations of time throughout Southeast Asia, contrasting academic, popular, and global clocks and calendars. It suggests that historical periodization and certain regimes often manipulate and define how many Asian countries regard time's passing.
