%X This paper clarifies the importance of discussing community transformation in Asian societies. Since the definition of “communities” by McIver, this term has contained a meaning of “chamber of secrets.” I criticize this notion of communities shown in Community Studies through a bibliographical and terminological consideration. I also introduce basic differences of concepts of communities between Northeast Asia, Southeast Asia, and Europe as a background. Based on this criticism, it introduces five articles that overcome the previous understanding of communities in Asian societies.
