This issue of Yishu features a few essays on the Pearl River Delta, an area which covers Hong Kong, Macao and Guangdong, and one which possesses its own characteristics as well as connections, both contemporary and historical, to the international arena. These essays study the impact of globalisation and the residue of local culture in the art produced in the region.

Four papers presented at the symposium held in Hangzhou in November 2003, Edges of the Earth are also featured here.
