Abstract

This volume offers a fresh perspective on the copy and the practice of copying, two topics that, while the focus of much academic discussion in recent decades, have been underrepresented in the discourse on transculturality. Here, experts from a wide range of academic disciplines present their views on the copy from a transcultural perspective, seeking not to define the copy uniformly, but to reveal its dynamic and transformative power. The copy and the practice of copying are thus presented as constituents of transculturality via thought-provoking contributions on topics spanning time periods from antiquity to the present, and regions from Asia to Europe. In so doing, these contributions aim to create the basis for a novel, interdisciplinary discourse on the copy and its transcultural impact throughout history.

This publication is dedicated to research on East Asian civil society with special attention given to composition, development and activities of non-governmental sector. The publication gathers research of authors from Lithuania, Germany, UK, South Korea and the Czech Republic who analyze not only general situation in East Asia but also provide detailed case studies. This allows to learn more about political and socioeconomic circumstances that determine particular characteristics of civil society in China, Korea and Japan. The collection of articles will be useful both for specialists of East Asia and researchers coming from the fields of political science, history, sociology and anthropology who would like to know more about familiar topics, such as labor movements, environmental organizations or democratization processes, in the context of less known countries.
