Cold War in Asia Series

Series Editor: Professor Malcolm H. Murfett

We are currently publishing a new series of books that both explores and addresses some of the more important questions raised by the Cold War in Asia. This series isn’t confined to single country studies alone, but welcomes contributions from research scholars who are tackling comparative issues within Asia during the time of the Cold War. We have already received proposals from both new and established scholars and are currently preparing our first wave of publications. Quality is our goal and the new series reflects this objective by catering for work drawn from a number of disciplines.

We are now looking for proposals for our second wave of books in this series. Therefore, if you work in the broad field of Cold War studies don’t hesitate to get in touch with the series editor Professor Malcolm Murfett at King’s College London (malcolm.murfett@kcl.ac.uk). Books, both single authored and edited manuscripts, should preferably be within the 60,000 – 100,000-word range, although we are also very interested in shorter studies (25,000-50,000 words) that focus on elements of the Cold War struggle in Asia.

If you are working on a project that seems to fit these guidelines, please send a detailed proposal to the series editor. Every proposal will, of course, be subject to strict peer review. If the proposal is supported by experts in the field, it will be our aim to begin publishing the next volumes of this series within a year to eighteen months of the issuing of a contract to the author.

 

We look forward to hearing from you.
