asia past & present: new research from aas

"asia past & present" is the aas scholarly monograph series.

this series is overseen by the aas editorial board and the series editor, william m. tsutsui.

aas expects to publish 1–2 "asia past and present" books a year, each fully refereed and selected on the basis of exemplary, original, and enduring scholarship.

the following "asia past & present" titles, written by leading scholars in their fields are now available:





submissions in all areas of asian studies are welcome. aas hopes to support work in emerging or under-represented fields, such as south asia, premodern asia, language and literature, art history, and literary criticism. in addition to monographs, other forms of scholarly research—such as essay collections and translations—will be considered.

authors interested in publishing in the "asia past & present" series should first consult the "author guidelines" and then e-mail excerpts of their manuscript (10,000–15,000 words, including a full table of contents and a representative sample chapter) along with a completed "author questionnaire" to jonathan wilson, aas publications manager at [email protected].

if, after initial evalsuation by the series editor, your manuscript is selected to be sent for review, you must at that time be prepared to provide a complete manuscript. only complete manuscripts will be reviewed. completed manuscripts should adhere to the "author guidelines."

authors must be current aas members at the time of submitting their initial manuscript excerpts for evalsuation. in the case of edited volumes with multiple editors, if your manuscript is selected for review, each editor must hold aas membership at the time of full manuscript submission (this requirement does not apply to contributors/single chapter authors).

questions? please contact the series editor, william m. tsutsui, [email protected] or aas publications manager, jonathan wilson, [email protected].
