Living in the Margins in Mainland China, Hong Kong and India

Since the financial crisis in the late 2000s, the world seems to have entered an epoch of anxiety featuring populism with varying degrees of protectionism and nationalism.What is the nature of this populist mood as a backlash against globalisation? How do people feel about it and act upon it? Why should specific intellectual attention be paid to the increasingly marginalised by the recent macroscopic structural changes? These are the questions addressed by the contributors this book, illustrated with specific casesfrom mainland China, Hong Kong and India, all of which have undergone substantial populist or nationalist movements since 2010.
