Based on multi-disciplinary studies conducted in Asia (India, Bhutan, China, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, New Zealand), this volume on Identity in Crossroad Civilisations: Ethnicity, Nationalism and Globalism in Asia demonstrates how identity is defined, negotiated and conceptualised in response to increasing globalisation in the region.

The first uniforms to grace the national park (NP) system were worn by soldiers, who started to protect Yellowstone Park in 1886. The Army took Sequoia and Yosemite NP under their wing in 1890. When the parks and forest reserves were separated in 1905 and the latter were given uniforms, the civilian "scouts" or park rangers gave serious thought to their own identity. The Interior Dept. began to develop a uniform for the NP rangers, which changed over the years and in various parks.
