Industrialization has meant sweeping social transformations across Asia. So me political commentators have predicted that the expansion of civil societ y and the rapid development of liberal democracy will necessarily follow. T he contributors to this volume dissect the extent of political opposition i n Asia and analyze the nature of new social movements outside institutional party politics which are contesting the exercise of state power. Nine orig inal case studies explore the variety of political oppositions across Asia, from non-governmental organizations and the formal opponents of the PAP in Singapore to Chinese dissidents based outside the People's Republic of Chi na. All take up the challenge of looking at political opposition in the lig ht of the new social phenomenon of the rising middle class or 'new rich' of Asia. Garry Rodan's hard-hitting analysis of the problems of current polit ical theorizing in relation to Asia sets the case studies firmly in the con text of wider debates about democratization. Political Oppositions in Indus trialising Asia shatters complacent assumptions about the progress of liber al democracy.
