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.
