Abstract

Lastly we consider the responses of students from five Asian societies concerning what are thought to be 'typical' moral and civic issues in Asian contexts (e.g. attitudes towards guanxi, obedience to authority and attitudes towards politicians' personal morality). New information on Asian students' attitudes is provided and the implications generated suggest further lines of inquiry in more detailed studies across these Asian societies on the issues discussed.
