In recognition of the impact of Covid-19 on campus instruction and the rise of unplanned distance learning, we are pleased to make all of our online journals content free to all through June 2020, including full access to Asian Survey and the Journal of Vietnamese Studies.
Please share using the conference hashtag #AAS2020.
Highlights from our Asian Studies list include What Is a Family? Answers from Early Modern Japan, edited by Mary Elizabeth Berry and Marcia Yonemoto, which explores the histories of diverse households during the Tokugawa period in Japan. Charlotte Brooks’ American Exodus: Second-Generation Chinese Americans in China, 1901–1949 is the first book to explore this extraordinary migration of Chinese Americans. In Search of Our Frontier: Japanese America and Settler Colonialism in the Construction of Japan’s Borderless Empire by Eiichiro Azuma looks at the complex transnational history of Japanese immigrant settler colonialism, and Eight Outcasts: Social and Political Marginalization in China under Mao by Yang Kuisong tells the stories of eight victims of the Maoist dictatorship.
In these unquestionably unique times, UC Press will continue to advocate for deep scholarship as an agent of engagement and democracy.
