Routledge are intending to publish a series of books that will explore and address some of the more important questions raised by the Cold War in Asia. This new series isn't going to be confined to single country studies alone, but will also welcome contributions from research scholars who are tackling comparative issues between the Asiatic nations during the time of the Cold War. We look forward to receiving proposals from both new and established scholars who have ideas for interesting book projects. Quality is our goal and the new series will reflect that objective by catering for work drawn from a number of disciplines. If you work in the broad field of Cold War studies don't hesitate to get in touch with the series editor Professor Malcolm H. Murfett, King's College London. 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 ( before 31 December 2017. 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 first volumes of this series within a year to eighteen months of the issuing of a confirmation letter to the author.

We look forward to hearing from you.
