The Asian Cities Series explores urban cultures, societies and developments from the ancient to the contemporary city, from West Asia and the Near East to East Asia and the Pacific. The series focuses on three avenues of inquiry: evolving and competing ideas of the city across time and space; urban residents and their interactions in the production, shaping and contestation of the city; and urban challenges of the future as they relate to human well-being, the environment, heritage and public life.
In 2014, IIAS replaced its existing IIAS and ICAS publication series with three new IIAS publication series: “Global Asia”, “Asian Cities” and “Asian Heritages”. Each series has its own editor and editorial board. As before, the books are published by Amsterdam University Press (AUP).
If you are interested in publishing a book in the Asian Cities Series, please do not hesitate to contact the Series editor.
