“Only an experienced and dogged journalist like Jennifer could possibly investigate and write such a thoroughly gripping historical personal narrative.

You must join her for this worthwhile journey!” —Connie Chung, television journalist

R. McNeill, Georgetown University This deeply informed and clearly written text provides a comprehensive history of China from prehistory to the present.

“Lin writes with a novelist’s narrative flair and grace and a historian’s fine eye for detail, and as she sketches the personalities, dreams, and life circumstances of her relatives, her thorough research and compassion for her subjects are evident.

History

By Bret Hinsch

“This book is a tour de force—a learned and lively presentation of women’s history during the longue durée of China’s development, from ancient beginnings to the end of the Qing era. . . . Hinsch draws on a wealth of scholarship, including primary and secondary sources in English, as well as those in Chinese and Japanese, and creates a readable and informative narrative of women’s history in China. Both students and research scholars will benefit from reading this highly informative volume.” —Harriet Zurndorfer, Leiden University This accessible text provides a comprehensive survey of women’s history in China from the Neolithic period through the end of the Qing dynasty in the early twentieth century. Rather than providing an exhaustive chronicle of this vast subject, Bret Hinsch pinpoints the themes that characterized distinct periods in Chinese women’s history and delves into the perception of female identity in each era. Hinsch’s extensive use of Chinese-language scholarship lends his book a fresh perspective rare among Western scholars. Professors and students will find this an invaluable textbook for Chinese women’s studies and an excellent supplement for courses in gender studies and Chinese history. Bret Hinsch is professor of history at Fo Guang University, Taiwan. Series: Asian Voices

Imperial China, 1350–1900 By Jonathan Porter

“Incorporating the insights of the New Qing historians, Porter examines the Qing as a multiethnic empire under Manchu leadership. The writing is clear and free of jargon, the book is well organized, and the maps are unfussy and fit in with the text. . . . Highly recommended.” —CHOICE “Professor Porter has produced the ideal textbook for a late Imperial China course.” —R. Kent Guy, University of Washington “Deftly incorporating a generation of Western scholarship on late Imperial China, Porter tells the story with a judicious use of the classical referents through which Chinese understand their own past. The product of four decades of teaching, this text should find a place in courses seeking to understand the last centuries of imperial rule and the background to China’s modern transformation.” —Joseph Esherick, emeritus, University of California, San Diego This clear book provides an overview of MingQing China (1368–1912), its last imperial age. As the climax of the traditional era and the harbinger of modern China, Porter argues that imperial China must be explored for its own sake as well as for the insights it provides in understanding contemporary China, and indeed world history writ large. Jonathan Porter is professor emeritus of history at the University of New Mexico. Rowman & Littlefield Publishers

Four Seasons A Ming Emperor and His Grand Secretaries in Sixteenth-Century China By John W. Dardess “In Four Seasons, John Dardess has once again deployed his unsurpassed mastery of the primary sources for the political history of the Ming court. . . . This book will provide specialists in the Ming with access to a most welcome level of fine detail for a crucial period in China’s early modern transformation, and it can also serve as a readable and engaging text for undergraduate courses in Chinese history.” —Kenneth Hammond, New Mexico State University “Dardess writes with his usual flair, offering a gripping, thoughtful, and informative narrative that’s a pleasure to read.” —Peter Ditmanson, Pembroke College, University of Oxford “The Jiajing era comes to life in this record of powerful personalities, mammoth rituals, and court intrigue. Four Seasons is a signal contribution to Ming institutional history.” —Katherine Carlitz, University of Pittsburgh Richly researched and engagingly written, this important history of imperial China shows in fascinating detail how Emperor Jiajing and his grand secretaries governed. Drawing on a treasure trove of the grand secretaries’ personal writings, John W. Dardess’s narrative brings to life the inner workings of the largest polity on the face of the earth. John W. Dardess is professor emeritus of history at the University of Kansas. Rowman & Littlefield Publishers

Being Hindu Understanding a Peaceful Path in a Violent World By Hindol Sengupta “The book—a great contribution to those who would want to understand Hinduism from the contemporary context—is a compelling read.” —S. Gurumurthy, writer and teacher on Hinduism and economics There are more than one billion Hindus in the world but very little seems to be understood about this gigantic, peaceful faith. Followers have not only built and sustained the world’s largest democracy but also one of the greatest philosophical streams in the world, continuously, for more than 3,000 years. So what makes a Hindu? Why is so little heard from the real practitioners of the everyday faith? Why does it never go beyond clichés? This is a practitioner’s guide, a journey to very simply and instinctively understand what the Hindu message is, where it stands in the Clash of Civilizations between Islam and Christianity and why the Hindu way could yet be the path for plurality and progress in the 21st century. Hindol Sengupta is the author of six books, including Recasting India: How Entrepreneurship Is Revolutionizing the World’s Largest Democracy (2014). He is editor-at-large for Fortune India and founder of the Whypoll Trust, which worked on India’s first women safety mobile app and gender mapping of Delhi. Rowman & Littlefield Publishers

This volume completes McMahon’s acclaimed history of imperial wives and royal polygamy in China.

A Filipina’s Story of Prostitution and Slavery under the Japanese Military Second Edition

By Maria Rosa Henson Introduction by Yuki Tanaka Foreword by Cynthia Enloe Preface by Sheila S. Coronel Previous Edition Praise: “[Henson’s] example is unforgettable.” —The Japan Times “Serves as a good introduction to readers who may be approaching the subject of ‘comfort women’ for the first time.” —Pilipinas In 1943, 15-year-old Maria Rosa Henson was taken by Japanese soldiers occupying the Philippines and forced into prostitution as a “comfort woman.” Now with a new introduction and foreword that assess the ongoing controversy over comfort women, her powerful memoir will be essential reading for all those concerned with violence against women. Maria Rosa Henson, 1928–1996, was the first comfort woman to go public with her story in 1992 and fought actively until her death for justice and reparations from the Japanese government. Yuki Tanaka was research professor at the Hiroshima Peace Institute of Hiroshima City University until his retirement in 2015.

By Mikiso Hane Introduction by Samuel H. Yamashita Previous Edition Praise: “An indispensable source for anyone wishing to know—or teach—about Japan’s traumatic emergence as a modern nation.” —John W. Dower, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Embracing Defeat “Remains an invaluable source for any student or researcher seeking to understand the human cost of Japan’s audacious and gruelling leap into the twentieth century.” —Pacific Affairs Now updated with a substantive new introduction, this compelling social history uses diaries, memoirs, fiction, trial testimony, personal recollections, and eyewitness accounts to weave a fascinating tale of what ordinary Japanese endured throughout their country’s era of booming economic growth. Mikiso Hane (1922–2003) was professor emeritus of history at Knox College. Samuel H. Yamashita is Henry E. Sheffield Professor of History at Pomona College.

Voices of Working-Class Japan “This work . . . brilliantly captures the human spirit of working-class Japanese in the first half of the twentieth century: farmers, schoolgirls, laborers, miners, housewives, soldiers.” —James L. Huffman, Wittenberg University “This is a remarkably coherent translation of a fascinating book.” —Christopher Gerteis, SOAS, University of London This compelling social history tells the stories of ordinary people in modern Japan. Tatsuichi Horikiri spent a lifetime searching out old items of Hardbacking and oral accounts to shed light on those who used these items. He illuminates not only the often desperate lives of these people but also their hopes, aspirations, and human values.

Their Lives and Times

This compelling autobiography tells the life story of famed manga artist Nakazawa Keiji. Born in Hiroshima in 1939, Nakazawa was six years old when on August 6, 1945, the United States dropped the atomic bomb.

Concubinage and Servitude in Late Imperial China is a survey of the institutions and practice of concubinage and servitude in both the general populace and the imperial palace in Ming-Qing China, focusing on an examination of political and socioeconomic history through the lives of this particular group of distinct, yet associated, individuals.

The Art of Governing Soldiers

The Body and Military Masculinity in Late Qing and Early Republican China By Nicolas Schillinger (Free University of Berlin)

Arturo Giraldez provides a rich history of the ships and sailors that launched the global economy. Beginning with the founding of Manila in 1571 and ending in 1815 when the last galleon left Acapulco for the Philippines, these vessels braved weather and pirates to establish a vital connection between the Spanish empire in America with Asia.

“[A] creative and thorough examination.” —Susan Brownell, University of Missouri–St. Louis

Arturo Giraldez is professor of modern languages and literature at the University of the Pacific.

This study examines the cultural effects of China’s adoption of a European military model in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It argues that there was a conceptual reconfiguration of Chinese masculinity and citizenship and focuses on how the body was conceived, shaped by physical fitness and medical practices, and controlled.

TEXTBOOK

“In the eleven years since its publication, State and Society in the Philippines has become required reading for students and aspiring young scholars from across the Asia-Pacific region and beyond. This revised edition brings the discussion up to date. . . . It is . . . an invitation to learning, enabling students to question, test, and refine their ideas, experiences, and practices as a way of preparing themselves for engaging in the world outside their classrooms.” —Caroline S. Hau, Center for Southeast Asian Studies, Kyoto University

“Embedding the making of “tourist Okinawa” within the experiences of wartime and U.S. occupation, Figal’s compelling analysis greatly enriches the growing field of Okinawan studies. . . . Highly recommended.” —CHOICE “A valuable addition to the field of Japan studies.” —Journal of Japanese Studies

This compelling book explores Okinawa’s makeover as a tourist mecca among the physical ruins of the Pacific War’s most devastating land battle. Gerald Figal considers how a place burdened by a history of semi-colonialism, memories of war and occupation, economic hardship, and contentious politics has reshaped itself into a resort destination. Gerald Figal is professor of history and Japanese cultural studies at Vanderbilt University. Rowman & Littlefield Publishers

Republic without Plebiscite “Lanxin Xiang’s provides a sustained, nuanced, and courageous attempt to restore Chinese political philosophy to its rightful status and to allow it to speak on its own terms. . . . [A] tour de force.” —Roger T. Ames, Peking University

“This rich volume sparkles with insight as a dozen scholars describe and debate the appropriation of Schmitt and Strauss in the contemporary Sinophone world. Anyone seeking to understand and then engage with Chinese criticism of liberalism and skepticism of Western modernity should start here.” —Stephen C. Angle, Wesleyan University

This study examines the crisis of legitimacy in Chinese political discourse caused by the clash of Western republicanism, Russian Bolshevism, and traditional Chinese values.

“This illuminating study—which is one of few works published in English from a native point of view—offers new insights into understanding Javanese concepts of aesthetics, and is a profound contribution to the fields of cultural studies, philosophy, political science, architecture, and urban design.” —Gunawan Tjahjono, University of Indonesia

“Useful Complaints embodies the best of cutting-edge research on contentious politics in China: fresh new data, mixed methods, and extensive fieldwork.” —Christopher Heurlin, Bowdoin College “This book offers a rich and clear analysis of how the Chinese state uses the petition system to achieve political responsiveness and hold local officials accountable. This is an important contribution to the debate on authoritarian resilience in China.” —Xi Chen, The Chinese University of Hong Kong This book examines the positive effects of the petition system on China’s resilient decentralized authoritarian regime. Combining detailed case studies and rigorous statistical analysis, it argues that citizens’ petitions help the regime to alleviate threats to stability by giving an information edge to the Chinese central government. Jing Chen is assistant professor of political science at Hartwick College. Lexington Books

The book analyzes various aspects of Javanese culture and society, including its history, customs, arts, architecture, polity, and society.

Protest Politics and the Democratization of South Korea Strategies and Roles of Women By Youngtae Shin Browse our comprehensive digital catalogs online: https://rowman.com/Page/eCatalogs

“Twenty-eight years after the summer of 1987 and the overthrow of the Chun Doo-hwan military regime, Shin has added another layer to the events, moving beyond the public display of tear gas barrages and Molotov cocktails to the private networks of care and support that enabled the drive for democratization. This contribution provides social scientists a qualitative resource for analyzing how participants join, organize, and maintain SMOs based on cultural and relational networks.” —Pacific Affairs This book examines the role of women involved in South Korea’s democratization movement. Through its study of older women and the gender roles and values of Korean society manifested in the “Mothers” movement, this book challenges social movement theories that focus on those on the front line but ignore those behind the scenes. Youngtae Shin is professor of political science and directs the Asian studies minor program at the University of Central Oklahoma. Lexington Books

Rethinking Japan

Single Mothers in Contemporary Japan

The Politics of Contested Nationalism

Motherhood, Class, and Reproductive Practice

By Arthur Stockwin and Kweku Ampiah

By Aya Ezawa

“This study is particularly impressive in offering concrete details and a convincing explanation for the policies of the current Shinzō Abe administration. The authors are to be congratulated for producing a work that should find a place on the bookshelves of all those with an interest in Japanese politics.” —Glenn D. Hook, University of Sheffield

“Aya Ezawa offers us not only a wonderfully detailed account of the experiences of single mothers in Japan but also a sophisticated examination of how gender and class intersect with Japan’s welfare, employment, and education systems in the case of women who appear to demonstrate a perhaps surprisingly conventional attitude toward marriage and family.” —Roger Goodman, University of Oxford

This study provides a broad examination of the current Shinzō Abe government in Japan. It analyzes various controversial domestic and foreign policies and argues that its election in 2012 inaugurated a new political phase characterized by opposition weakness and ruling-party unity around a nationalist agenda. Arthur Stockwin is retired professor of modern Japanese studies at the University of Oxford. Kweku Ampiah is associate professor of Japanese studies at the University of Leeds. Lexington Books

“Beautifully written. . . . This book provides a rare window on single mothers’ struggles for balancing work and family and strategies for their children’s future in contemporary Japan.” —Hiroshi Ishida, University of Tokyo Based on life history interviews of single mothers in Japan, this detailed study examines the socioeconomic consequences of becoming a single mother and pursuing a lifestyle outside of the married mother and housewife norm in contemporary Japan. Aya Ezawa is lecturer at Leiden University.

Creating Japan’s Ground Self-Defense Force, 1945–2015

New in Paperback

Resilient Borders and Cultural Diversity

A Sword Well Made By David Hunter-Chester “This highly readable book provides an unparalleled explanation of the historic, cultural, and political roots of Japan’s modern ground forces.” —Michael J. Green, Georgetown University

Internationalism, Brand Nationalism, and Multiculturalism in Japan By Koichi Iwabuchi “Iwabuchi’s is the only book by a Japanese author to emphasize the sociological link between cultural borders and ethnic minority groups in Japan, especially the zainichi. . . . Iwabuchi distinguishes himself from other mainstream cultural pundits in Japan by openly underscoring how national borders are reinforcing invisible ones within Japan.” —Cross-Currents: East Asian History and Culture Review

“A well-researched and very readable work that is a must-read for those wishing to understand America’s most important security partner.” —Wallace “Chip” Gregson, former Assistant Secretary of Defense for Asian and Pacific Security Affairs This study provides a comprehensive institutional history of Japan’s post-1945 army. It also analyzes representations of the military in popular culture, the place of soldiers in the formation of the country’s postwar national identity, and the social and political impact of constitutional restrictions on the military.

This book discusses how the evolution of market-driven cultural globalization has reinforced the administration of national cultural borders in Japan. As a result of these processes, a particular kind of cross-border connectivity and exchange is embraced while dialog and engagement with multicultural questions within Japan are discouraged.

David Hunter-Chester has a PhD in East Asian history and has taught at the United States Army Command and General Staff College, West Point, and Webster University. Lexington Books

Precarious Belongings

An Anthology

Edited by Chih-ming Wang and Daniel PS Goh

Edited by Theodore W. Goossen and Anindo Hazra

“Relationships between affect and national identity are a crucial aspect of the critical perspectivism ushered in by contemporaneity. This book is an important contribution to knowledge of those relationships in Asian contexts.” —Paul Gladston, University of Nottingham Precarious Belongings explores the affective politics of Asian nationalism by addressing the entwined structures of precarious belonging and national feelings. Bringing together leading scholars, it looks at how the reification of nationalism in social movements, popular sentiments, online groups, and cultural representation directs hatred towards migrant and minority groups across Asia.

Uttara Kanda

Rewriting the Nation in Modern Kazakh Literature

The Book of Answers

Elites and Narratives

By Valmiki Translated with commentary by Arshia Sattar

By Diana T. Kudaibergenova “Rewriting the Nation in Modern Kazakh Literature offers a rare glimpse into the world of the ‘writers of the nation’ who, in pursuit of their elitist projects, shaped ‘total readership’ in Soviet Kazakhstan and inscribed the ideals of indigenous history and nationhood. While focused on research and mythology involved in these Soviet projects, it speaks volumes to broader issues and provides important insights to academic debates on totalitarianism, post-colonialism, and national imagination.” —Saulesh Yessenova, University of Calgary

“Both a terrific read and a revolutionary contribution to our understanding of the Valmiki Ramayana—and of the many Ramayanas that followed. The translation is smooth, spirited, and accurate and the seven essays brilliantly illuminate the text. Together they show why this largely unknown final book of the Ramayana is the answer to many of the enigmas in the rest of the text and the explanation of much of the worship of Rama that is to come.” —Wendy Doniger, University of Chicago The last and most intriguing book of the Ramayana, the Uttara is rendered by Sanskrit scholar Arshia Sattar in vivid, sensuous detail. Accompanied by Sattar’s thoughtful essays that explore the moral complexity of this most enduring of epics, this translation crystallizes her deep and intimate knowledge of the Ramayana in a way that is utterly compelling. Arshia Sattar holds a PhD from the Department of South Asian Languages and Civilizations at the University of Chicago. She teaches classical Indian literatures at several institutions in India and writes for a number of journals and magazines. Rowman & Littlefield Publishers

Imagining Sisterhood in Modern Chinese Texts, 1890–1937

Scripting Dance in Contemporary India is an edited volume that engages with multiple dance forms of India and their representations. The contributions are eclectic, including writings by both scholars and performers who share their experiential knowledge.

By Yun Zhu

“This well-researched and tightly argued book demonstrates the centrality of an imagined female community, rallying around the notion of ‘sisterhood,’ in the construction of modern Chinese nationalism and Chinese modernity.” —Ping Zhu, University of Oklahoma Through the lens of the discursive reconstruction and cultural reimagining of sisterhood, this book investigates the dynamic entanglements and contestations among women, nation, and Chinese modernity. Yun Zhu is assistant professor of Chinese and Asian studies at Temple University. Lexington Books

The Great Chinese Art Transfer

China Reinterpreted

How So Much of China’s Art Came to America

Staging the Other in Muromachi Noh Theater

By Michael St. Clair (Emmanuel College, Boston)

By Leo Shingchi Yip (Gettysburg College)

This is the story of one of the great outflows of art in history, that is, from China into the collections and museums of the West. Western collectors and international dealers gathered paintings, ceramics, and other art objects during a short period from 1860 into the early years of the twentieth century, and now there is a reverse flow as wealthy Chinese collectors purchase back some of these treasures.

“[T]his volume introduces readers to the richness, diversity, and complexity of a China seldom visible from other sources. It builds upon the previous excellent work by Pickowicz and Zhang and should be of great interest to anyone in Chinese studies or film studies.” —Stanley Rosen, University of Southern California

Folk Art and Modern Culture in Republican China

“If you wanted to understand the actual conditions inside a large American corporation, would you look to an expensive infomercial from the office of the CEO or to amateur footage from the cell phones of dozens of unorganized but concerned employees? There is a parallel in China, where makers of independent documentary films are revealing unrehearsed life that state-sponsored film, by its nature, is obliged to conceal. China-watchers take note.” —Perry Link, University of California, Riverside This cutting-edge book examines the rapidly developing scene of Chinese independent documentary, arguably the most courageous player in contemporary Chinese visual culture. The book’s emphasis on current issues and its discussion of aesthetic experiments will appeal to all readers interested in China’s culture, media, politics, and society. Paul G. Pickowicz is Distinguished Professor of History and Chinese Studies at the University of California, San Diego. Yingjin Zhang is Distinguished Professor of Literature and Chinese Studies at the University of California, San Diego.

By Felicity Lufkin (Harvard University) “Felicity Lufkin approaches Chinese folk art with the keen eye of an art historian. This [is an] engrossing and richly illustrated work.” —James A. Flath, University of Western Ontario This study argues that folk art entered the modern discourse on Chinese visual arts as an object of both pride and shame and describes how ideas about folk art were articulated in the pivotal period of the 1930s and 1940s.

This is a very informative scholarly book not only for the study of noh theater but also of Asian theater and culture in general.” —Noriko Reider, Miami University This book is a comprehensive study of Chinese figures and motifs in medieval Japanese noh theater. It explores the images of China and their implications constructed in the so-called “karagoto-mono” (Chinese plays) that reflect the artistic preferences, as well as the cultural and sociopolitical sentiments toward China held by Muromachi noh artists and audiences.

Writing Beijing Urban Spaces and Cultural Imaginations in Contemporary Chinese Literature and Films By Yiran Zheng (Capital Normal University, Beijing) “This book makes a substantial contribution both to urban study and literature and film studies.” —Dongfeng Tao, Capital Normal University, Beijing This study investigates literary configurations of Beijing through contemporary Chinese literature and films. These configurations as “revolutionary Beijing,” “traditional and masculine Beijing,” “global Beijing as a Urban Dream” are built upon three specific urban spaces: military compound, traditional dwellings, and some post-modern architectures. Representation of these spaces are revealed to be the projections of some writers and filmmakers’ own cultural imaginations. Lexington Books

Edited by Daniel Black, Olivia Khoo, and Koichi Iwabuchi

By Ardi Kia

“This volume brings together a refreshing set of chapters focusing on the diverse and dynamic landscape of contemporary Asian media and culture. Adopting what the editors call a ‘trans-Asian’ approach and adopting an expansive notion of ‘Asia’ that extends beyond discrete nation-states and conventional regional boundaries, the volume is testimony to the coming into maturity of Asian and Asiandiasporic scholarship in the field.” —Ien Ang, University of Western Sydney

Brian Winchester, Indiana University This book invites readers on a journey through time, to explore the multifaceted history of Central Asia. Through transcontinental passages such as the Silk Road, the book provides links among the major civilizations of China, India, Persia, and the Mediterranean, which in turn influences the characteristics of the region and beyond.

Brings together leading and emerging scholars from Asia, North America and Australia to develop new perspectives on the key issues in contemporary Asian cultural and media studies.

The ramifications of her thoughtful analysis go far beyond the Beijing Olympics.” —Rey Chow, Duke University Chinese Subjectivities and the Beijing Olympics develops the Foucauldian concept of productive power through examining the ways in which the Chinese government tried to mobilize the population to embrace its Olympic project through deploying various sets of strategies and tactics.

Landscape, Memory, and Post-Violence in Cambodia By James A. Tyner

“Moved emotionally and intellectually by thousands of unmarked mass graves from the Cambodian genocide, James Tyner brilliantly exposes the silences in how and where the Khmer Rouge is remembered officially while arguing that this violent past holds an unreconciled place within the lives and landscapes of the present.” —Derek H. Alderman, University of Tennessee This book explores how the legacy of violence during the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia is memorialized. Engaging with war, violence and critical heritage studies, the book looks at how the selective production of heritage diminishes opportunities for justice and reconciliation beyond the violence. It should be of particular interest to students and scholars interested in heritage studies, memory, trauma, genocide, dark tourism, and Cambodia. James A.

“Punks, Monks and Politics takes you on an excellent and timely exploration of contemporary struggles for and with authenticity in Southeast Asia.” —Thomas A. Reuter, Australian Research Council, author of Custodians of the Sacred Mountains: Culture and Society in the Highlands of Bali Punks, Monks and Politics explores the idea of authenticity as enacted in Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia. The collective contributions reveal the sometimes contradictory ways in which the dynamics of authenticity—its pursuit, it deployment, its politics—play out in very different contexts. Whether authenticity inheres in the local or the global, amongst the majority or within a subculture, on the outside of or within people, or in the past or the present, authenticity is nevertheless valued.

Despite the vibrant development of the field of ecocriticism on the island of Taiwan, there has, as yet, been no single volume in English dedicated to illustrating Taiwan’s important contributions to international ecocriticism, especially the emerging “vernacular” trend in the field that emphasizes the significance of local perspectives and styles, including non-western, aboriginal, and comparative approaches. Ecocriticism in Taiwan provides a model for a more nuanced version of the locale-specific, vernacular thinking about the environment, art, and human identity.

“An innovative, fascinating, and original take on a society we thought we knew quite well. Cynthia T. Fowler provides revealing and insightful passages that reflect on the relation of space and time, on the periodicity of sea worms and moon phases, and on rituals which try to recover lost souls from celestial bodies.” —Janet Hoskins, University of Southern California “In this lively and innovative book, with its engaging prose style, Cynthia Fowler takes us on a journey across radically different scales of understanding.” —Roy Ellen, University of Kent Biosocial Synchrony on Sumba examines biosocial change in the Austronesian community of the Kodi by examining multispecies interactions between select biota and abiota. Cynthia T. Fowler is associate professor of anthropology at Wofford College. Lexington Books

South Asian Racialization and Belonging after 9/11 New

Masks of Threat Edited by Aparajita De “[A] rich cross-disciplinary and multivoiced work that explores a post 9/11 world in which political and cultural edifices entrenched by imperial discourse have sanctified the convenient ‘first world–third world’ dichotomy. . . . This collection of essays is a much needed sociological exploration of how transnational politics often emphasize a conception of identity polarized between the ‘authentic’ and the ‘demonic.’” —Nyla Ali Khan, University of Oklahoma, Norman

Transcultural Flows of English and Education in Asian Contexts

Edited by Tyler Andrew Barrett and Melissa Fellin This book investigates the “collision” or “synthesis” that occurs between people when cultures are shared and reconstructed in different contexts and result in hybridity. By focusing on transcultural flows the authors acknowledge the hybridity in educational concepts and practices that emerge as a result of relationships and processes that occur inside and outside of the classroom as people and their cultures come together.

How do contemporary cultural and literary texts from the diaspora or from South Asia iterate patterns of racial surveillance and prejudice against South Asians in the United States after 9/11? This collection delves into the underpinnings of American imperialism and identity politics after 9/11. Contributions by Hasan al Zayed, Lopamudra Basu, Chandrima Chakraborty, Reshmi Dutt-Ballerstadt, John Hutnyk, Nitasha Sharma, Stanley Thangaraj, and Sarah Wahab.

The Origins of Religious Violence An Asian Perspective By Nicholas F. Gier “Nicholas F. Gier provides a compelling and insightful philosophical analysis of why violence occurs in the name of religion, despite the centrality of nonviolence to so many of the world’s religious traditions.

Public Zen, Personal Zen A Buddhist Introduction By Peter D. Hershock (East-West Center in Honolulu) “Hershock has written a powerful portrait of Zen Buddhism that has much to offer not only to the uninitiated but also to those familiar with the history and practice of this religion. ” —Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

A scholar of world religions investigates religiously motivated violence that occurred in medieval Tibet and Bhutan, as well as in modern India, Sri Lanka, Burma, and Japan.

Confucius The Man and the Way of Gongfu By Peimin Ni “[T]his is an interesting text with insightful passages and challenging interpretations worth pondering. . . . Recommended.” —CHOICE “There is no shortage of introductory books on Confucius. What makes Ni’s book outstanding is, as its subtitle shows, that it takes a gongfu approach, not in the sense that it presents Confucius as a martial artists with wonderful skills of fighting. Rather, it pictures Confucius as one of the greatest Chinese philosophers, if not the greatest one, who, instead of being interested in solving profound intellectual riddles, is good at teaching his students the simple art of living a life that is authentically human. Confucius: The Man and the Way of Gongfu is simply the best of the kind.” —Huang Yong, The Chinese University of Hong Kong Through a systematic introduction of Confucius as a historical figure, a spiritual leader, a philosopher, a political reformer, an educator, and a person, this book offers a comprehensive, lucid, and in-depth articulation of Confucius and his teachings for Western students.

Against Individualism A Confucian Rethinking of the Foundations of Morality, Politics, Family, and Religion By Henry Rosemont, Jr. (St. Mary’s College of Maryland) “[A]n insightful and timely book.” —Journal of Chinese Humanities

Keekok Lee uses two related strategies: arguing that all science and therefore medicine cannot be understood without excavating its philosophical presuppositions and showing what those presuppositions are in the case of CCM compared with those of biomedicine.

Tragic Beauty in Whitehead and Japanese Aesthetics By Steve Odin

“Tragic Beauty in Whitehead and Japanese Aesthetics embodies the best in comparative philosophy. . . . Highly recommended!” —Daniel A. Dombrowski, Seattle University

Forthcoming

Contemporary Korean Political Thought and Park Chung-hee

This book examines Alfred North Whitehead’s process aesthetics focusing especially on two categories, including the penumbral beauty of darkness and the tragic beauty of perishability, while further establishing parallels with the Japanese sense of evanescent beauty as yûgen and aware. It clarifies how both Whitehead and Japanese tradition develop an aesthetics of beauty as perishability culminating in a religio-aesthetic vision of tragic beauty and its reconciliation in the supreme ecstasy of peace.

By Jung In Kang

This book examines the political thought of Park Chung-hee (1917–1979), the most revered, albeit the most controversial, former president in the history of South Korea. It looks at the trends in the ideological terrain of contemporary South Korean politics, and the legacy of Park Chung-hee’s authoritarian politics. Jung In Kang is professor of political science at Sogang University, South Korea.

Steve Odin teaches Japanese and East-West comparative philosophy at the University of Hawaii, where he has taught for more than thirty years.

Freedom in the World 2016

The World Almanac of Islamism 2017 By American Foreign Policy Council

The Annual Survey of Political Rights and Civil Liberties By Freedom House Freedom in the World, the Freedom House flagship survey whose findings have been published annually since 1972, is the standard-setting comparative assessment of global political rights and civil liberties. The survey ratings and narrative reports on 195 countries and fifteen territories are used by policymakers, the media, international corporations, civic activists, and human rights defenders to monitor trends in democracy and track improvements and setbacks in freedom worldwide. The methodology of this survey is derived in large measure from the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and these standards are applied to all countries and territories.

Now in its third edition, The World Almanac of Islamism is the first comprehensive reference work to detail the current activities of radical Islamist movements worldwide. The contributions, written by subject experts, provide up-to-date assessments on the contemporary Islamist threat in all countries and regions where it exists. Each country study will include valuable metrics for gauging the advance or decline of Islamism. In places where Islamists are not in power, these include year-on-year comparisons of the number of terrorist attacks that have taken place, the level of popular support being received by radical religious organizations and political parties, and applicable government responses to these trends, if any.
