This book argues that Western ideas of freedom have become widely accepted in Asia, as the key determinant for measuring a range of legal, ethical and political practices. The book finds that modern conceptions of freedom become adapted to local contexts throughout Asia. It avoids cultural relativism and generalisations, but does find a number of common ideas relating to freedom across the region. A prestigious group of contributors explores freedom from historical, religious, political and ideological perspectives.
