|Title:||The Construction of National Character in the Interface of Global and Local Traditions||Authors:||Khondker, H.H.||Issue Date:||1994||Citation:||Khondker, H.H. (1994). The Construction of National Character in the Interface of Global and Local Traditions. The Construction of National Character in the Interface of Global and Local Traditions. ScholarBank@NUS Repository.||Abstract:||Examples from a number of developing countries in South & Southeast Asia are drawn on to critically assess the merits of the notion of national character. In tracing the historical development of national traditions in this region, explored is the interaction between local & global culture. The idea of the nation as an imagined community suggests the constructed nature of national character. Examined are how this imagination process takes place, how power influences imagination, & how the definition of national character imposed on the people by the state elites is compromised & negotiated in the face of extranational, global politicoeconomic & cultural factors.||Source Title:||The Construction of National Character in the Interface of Global and Local Traditions||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/130463|
