This volume applies a consumption approach to the study of ethnicity and nationalism, thereby challenging the usual "top down" approach to nation-formation. Contributors from a variety of disciplines examine the on-going consumption of minority and national cultures by looking at different forms of consumption, including a national lottery, theme parks, museums, cross-cultural handbooks, popular song, and audio-visual media. Chapters span diverse parts of Asia - from Korea, Japan and China to Malaysia and Sri Lanka.
