Summary "Two-Way Mirrors engages in cross-cultural study - a pursuit inherently both reflective and reflexive, shedding light not only on the object of study but also on the subject conducting the study. In the first section, Eugene Chen Eoyang shows the different and oppositional premises in Eastern and Western poetic juxtaposed not as contradictory, requiring an either/or option, but as complementary, allowing for a mutual illumination of values. Eoyang then moves on to confront the question of globalization and postmodernism bidirectionally, from an Asian perspective as well as a Western one. The last section considers the cross-cultural dynamics, as well as the ironies of center and periphery, in the globalization and glocalization of knowledge."--BOOK JACKET.
