Title: The price of belonging : perspectives from Asia / edited by Éva Rozália Hölzle and Joanna Pfaff-Czarnecka.

Other titles: Price of belonging, perspectives from Asia

Description: Leiden ; Boston : Brill, 2023. | Series: Social sciences in Asia, 1567-2794 ; volume 43 | Includes index and bibliographic references. | Summary: “To belong often involves the performance of burdensome obligations, the sacrifice or suppression of personal desires for the collective good and the demand for demonstrating lifelong loyalty. Belonging may also entail hidden threats, risks and pressures that lurk in the corners of familiarity. These are the key aspects that The Price of Belonging explores in detail by bringing together nine original ethnographic case studies from across Asia and the Asian diaspora. By shedding light on the adverse facets of belonging, the book challenges its overly idealistic depictions and offers a differentiated look at this social practice”– Provided by publisher.
