However, both ideas and practices concerning sleeping and night-time are constantly changing and widely differ between cultures and societies. This book suggests that far from being natural phenomena, sleep and night-time are sites of political struggle between groups as distinct as religious leaders, school boards and political parties. The essays here provide an important resource for students of Asian and Cultural Studies and will also appeal to the general reader interested in such a rarely studied everyday event.
