Asia has a long history of transnational linkage with other parts of the world. Yet the contribution of Asian knowledge, values, and practices in the making of the modern world has largely been overlooked until recent years. The rise of Asia is often viewed as a challenge to the existing world order. Such a bifurcated view overlooks the fact that the global order has been shaped by Asian experiences as much as the global formation has shaped Asia. The Global Asia Series takes this understanding as the point of departure. It addresses contemporary issues related to transnational interactions within the Asian region, as well as Asia’s projection into the world through the movement of goods, people, ideas, knowledge, ideologies, and so forth. The series aims to publish timely and well-researched books that will have the cumulative effect of developing new perspectives and theories about global Asia.
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 one of our series, please do not hesitate to contact its editor.
