Education About Asia (EAA) is the peer-reviewed teaching journal of the Association for Asian Studies. Our online and print readers include undergraduate instructors as well as high school and middle school teachers. Our articles are intended to provide educators and academics in the humanities and social sciences who are often not specialists with basic understanding of Asia-related content. Teachers and professors also utilize many EAA articles and essays as student readings. Qualified referees evaluate all manuscripts submitted for consideration.
Pacific Affairs is pleased to announce the publication of its latest issue (Sept. 2015), a special issue dedicated to flooding in urban Asia. What follows is a detailed table of contents with abstracts as well as a full list of our latest book and film reviews. The full texts of our reviews are available for free at our website, http://www.pacificaffairs.ubc.ca/
