This intriguing volume explains why, after centuries of Western scholars studying Asia, Asian scholars are beginning to study Western societies in return. Responding to the rise of Nordic studies in China, Japan and Korea, the authors explore how economic success in East Asia is raising issues – like how to deal with an ageing population, income redistribution and provision of social security – that have long been addressed in the Nordic region. Conversely, the Nordic countries have much to learn from the dynamism and flexibility found in East Asia today. Yet, the authors also show how cultural and political differences pose challenges to mutual understanding and learning.
