Based on historic and ethnographic approaches, this volume examines how the ideological images of Asian women are produced, circulated, appropriated, and pluralized. Contributors analyze the interactions between the politicized formation of ideological representations and the everyday practices of women who resist and re-contextualize these images.

"This book is a richly textured account of the lives of Asian women narrated as heterogeneous fragments. From revolutionary mothers in North Korea, Jeju female divers, Japanese wives of Pakistani men learning 'authentic' Islam, to low-caste women in Nepal, the chapters in the book illuminate the multiple different ways that the interplay between representations of women and women's practices may reinforce, slip past, or collide with each other." - Brenda S.A. Yeoh, National University of Singapore
"This book offers a breathtakingly panoramic view of increasingly transnational lives of women in today's Asia. It follows these women's extraordinary journeys in caring eyes and celebrates new sites of intimacy and bonds of solidarity that are created along the way. In doing so, it cautiously prepares an image of Asia that is more open and interconnected than in the past but which, nevertheless, is not oblivious to the histories of coerced movement and displacement." - Heonik Kwon, Trinity College, University of Cambridge, UK
