The War and Peace Library

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.

Asian Voices


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.
