The War and Peace Library will examine the nature and dynamics of war in all historical periods and in regional and comparative perspective. Works in the series will consider the logic of war, the scale of destruction, and the efforts to limit and end war that have long been central to the human agenda. Particular attention will be paid to the great wars of the twentieth century and their implications for the future, while recognizing their historical centrality to struggles for wealth, power, nationhood and human dignity.
Forthcoming volumes by Brian Victoria.
This series examines large-scale, long-term social change in the modern world. Focusing especially on the intersection of political economy, conflict, and social movements, authors in the series will utilize both micro- and macro-approaches. Books will explore multiple challenges and transformations facing national, regional, and global structures, hierarchies of inequality, and dominant social and cultural values.
This series introduces new perspectives on Asia and the Pacific, historical and contemporary, offering local, regional and global perspectives on social, political, economic and cultural change.
Forthcoming volumes by Leonard Blussé, Stephanie Hurtgen/Boy Luethje/Wilhelm Schumm & Martina Sproll, and Dong Wang.
Introducing compelling and rarely heard voices, this series will center on biography, autobiography, memoir, and reportage by and about Asian and Pacific peoples. Readers will find contemporary women and men, ethnic minorities, farmers and fisherfolk, workers, migrants, the new rich and the dispossessed, writers, artists, intellectuals, politician and prophets, iconoclasts, and activists. These are individuals who are shaping and/or resisting the outcomes of intense social change-local, regional, and global. The humanity and diversity of these distinctive voices and experiences will appeal to students and scholars with interests ranging from area studies to gender, the environment, human rights, and social movements.
Forthcoming books by Kwok-shing Chan, Maziar Falarti and others.
The books in this series explore the political, social, economic and cultural consequences of Asia's twentieth century transformations and look toward their impact on the twenty first century. The series emphasizes the tumultuous interplay of local, national, regional and global forces as Asia bids to become the hub of the world economy. While focusing on the contemporary, it also looks back to analyze the antecedents of Asia's contested rise.
Forthcoming volumes by Tessa Morris-Suzuki, Morris Low, Leonid Petrov and Timothy Y. Tsu, and by Ian Wilson.
Forthcoming works by Larissa Hjorth and Michael Arnold
Each volume aims to capture the heartbeat of the contemporary city from multiple perspectives emblematic of the authors own deep familiarity with the distinctive faces of the city, its history, society, culture, politics and economics, and its evolving position in national, regional and global frameworks. While most volume emphasize urban developments since the Second World War, some pay close attention to the legacy of the longue durée in shaping the contemporary. Thematic and comparative volumes address such themes as urbanization, economic and financial linkages, architecture and space, wealth and power, gendered relationships, planning and anarchy, and ethnographies in national and regional perspective.
The series is intended to showcase the most important contributions to scholarship in Asian Studies. Each of the volumes by a leading Asian scholar addresses themes that are central to his or her most significant and lasting contribution to the field. The series, committed to the rich variety of research and writing on Asia, particularly welcomes comparative, theoretical and regional approaches in a variety of disciplines.
Forthcoming work by Francesca Bray

The series invites contributions that probe political, economic, strategic, social and cultural change including those that highlight attempts by the United States, Japan and China to shape the character of the region and social movements that have contested those attempts.
