In September, UC Press welcomed Current History to our list of journals. Begun as a supplement to the New York Times in 1914, Current History is the oldest publication devoted exclusively to international affairs published in the United States. The journal aims to observe and explain the profound changes transforming every region of the world, providing readers with a better understanding of today’s crucial events and pressing global trends through contributions from leading and emerging experts and scholars. Each issue of Current History focuses on a single geographic region or topic; each December’s issue focuses on the Middle East. We invite you to explore Current History‘s December 2019 Middle East issue for free for a limited time.

UC Press began publishing Contemporary Arab Affairs (CAA) in 2018. CAA is the international quarterly journal of the Centre for Arab Unity Studies. It is a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal that publishes high-quality and original research from and on the Arab region. CAA seeks to publish work by specialists, policy experts, and scholars from the Arab world or those who have academic interest in the region. Drawing on the expertise of the Centre for Arab Unity Studies, a well-established publisher of research in Arabic, CAA has the objective to publish and circulate authentic research and studies originally produced in Arabic by Arab researchers and intellectuals and make them available to a global international audience and with the aim of promoting constructive dialogue between Arabs and the West. We are pleased to make CAA‘s current September 2020 issue available to read for free for a limited time.
