A history of asia 7th edition and copenhagen style guide by anna peuckert
Societies of Asia This chapter surveys the traditional societies of Asia and finds, despite the differences among them, many similarities, especially in their emphasis on hierarchical ranking as in the Indian caste system but also markedly in East Asia , the primacy of the family and of larger groups beyond it within the context of group solidarity and group effort, and patterns of marriage and child rearing. It then considers the status of women, sexual customs, the importance of education and learning, material welfare, attitudes toward nature and human life, and the role of law. As is still true today to a large extent, traditional Asian societies showed a remarkable similarity in their emphasis on hierarchical status groupings based primarily on age, gender, and occupation or social role. They also stressed, and still stress, the subordination of individual interests to the common interest of the group: family, village, caste, guild, or other occupational unit. Individuals advanced or lost status as members of groups, as the groups advanced, prospered, or declined, or as the individuals grew older. Much of the achievement of traditional Asia is attributable to this acceptance of the need to work together in pursuit of common goals. People were discouraged from trying to operate on their own, and certainly from attempting to challenge, subvert, get around, or change the group-oriented social system.
