We are delighted to make select issues from UC Press journals that cover Asian Studies free to read online during the annual conference of the Asian Studies Association.

Asian Survey‘s 2021 Year-In-Review Issue

The only academic journal of its kind produced in the United States, Asian Survey provides a comprehensive retrospective of contemporary international relations within South, Southeast, and East Asian nations. As the Asian community’s matrix of activities becomes increasingly complex, it is essential to have a sourcebook for sound analysis of current events, governmental policies, socio-economic development, and financial institutions. In Asian Survey you’ll find that sourcebook. 

Asian Survey consistently publishes articles by leading American and foreign scholars, whose views supplement and contest meanings disseminated by the media. Journal coverage ranges in scope from diplomacy, disarmament, missile defense, military, and modernization, to ethnicity, ethnic violence, economic nationalism, general elections, and global capitalism. 

Don’t miss this opportunity to read this year’s year-in-review issue capturing significant developments in Asian national development. 

We also encourage you to read the essay Sheena Chestnut Greitens posted to the UC Press blog this week on China, Russia, and Ukraine. In the post, Greitens, a contributor to Asian Survey‘s forthcoming special double issue, “The Impact of the Ukraine War on Asia” (publishing in November/December 2022), considers why China has taken the position it has on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Current History’s Annual “China and East Asia” Issue

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. 

Current History devotes each September issue to China and East Asia. This issue usually includes coverage of Southeast Asia as well, and occasionally Australasia too. Contributors to these issues have included Pamela McElwee, Joseph Wong, Anita Chan, and Sebastian Veg.

We are delighted to make the most recent China and East Asia issue, “Money Matters” available to read for free online for a limited time.

Journal of Vietnamese Studies‘s Current Issue

Journal of Vietnamese Studies promotes and publishes original social science and humanities research about Vietnamese history, politics, culture, and society, as well as Vietnam-related topics that have traditionally been set apart from mainstream area studies scholarship such as the Vietnamese diaspora and the Vietnam War.
