Concerned with the changing structures and class character of the state in Asia and its increasing tendency to be dominated by specific interest groups -- religions, ethnic, and communal -- the contributors, while examining specific situations in China, Malaysia, Iran, Bangladesh, India, Singapore, South Korea, and Sri Lanka, focus on the strengthening of patriarchy arising out of the interaction of state, community and household.
