The third and final volume of Asia Inside Out, Itinerant People focuses on the idea of "Diasporic Asia" - the meanings of the movement of people, past and present. Which specific groups and communities linked the trading empires of the South China Coast, South Asia, and the Middle East ? Who actually traveled in the ships, and who travels in our modern jumbo jets? The authors consider the varied experiences of important mobile ethnic groups and their modern descendants. It is no accident that many of the descendants of these traveling communities can still be found around the rim of the Indian Ocean - and that many have seeped up into the land- and sea-scapes of the South China coast. The book explores the transient histories of "people on the move," through voluntary or involuntary circulation, either part of chosen paths (such as migration) or the radials of coerced journeys (such as slavery, or the dislocations wrought by conflict). The fluidity of human movement has acted to render the evolution of "Asia" more complex, both reinforcing older connections across time and space and forging new connections.--

Inside Out, Outside In celebrates the fifteenth anniversary of architects RMJM and the significant contribution the firm has made to architecture in the UK and beyond. From its creation in Britain in 1956, the practice has evolved and developed into an international firm with 600 members of staff and a broad and eclectic variety of projects. RMJM has always remained true to its founding principles: putting people first and valuing the process as much as the product. This book sets out the workings of RMJM from the inside out - the unique combination of personalities and cultures that it embraces - and from the outside in - exploring its client relations and current projects. Inside Out, Outside In examines the processes employed by the practice from concept to completion and explores the influences and technologies that impact upon the company's unique perspective on architecture and development. A diversity of material, including both personal viewpoints and academic assessment, alongside plans, drawings, photographs, paintings and illustrations, provides a new way of looking at architecture, design, space and visual culture.
