From Mariátegui to Sloterdijk

A Comparative and Literary-Historical Reevaluation

N. Heinrich, Australian National University Read More..

Staging for the Emperors:

A History of Qing Court Theatre, 1683–1923
Liana Chen
ISBN: 9781621965480

"I have read this book with great pleasure and learned a lot from it. This study is evidently based on extensive and careful research of primary sources, and it presents a clear outline of the development of court drama during the Qing dynasty. Doing so, Liana Chen focuses on the reigns of Kangxi, Qianlong, and Jiaqing, and the years Cixi was in power. Such a study is very welcome." —Wilt Idema, Harvard University Read More..

Individual Autonomy and Responsibility in Late Imperial China

Paolo Santangelo
ISBN: 9781621965497

“A timely masterpiece … A major strength of the book is its comparative perspective. Santangelo not only compares and contrasts the terms and reflections within Buddhist, Confucian, and Daoist contexts, but he also expertly brings Western concepts into conversation with the East Asian constructions of self, destiny, shame, and pleasure." —Guotong Li, California State University, Long Beach Read More..

Japan's Russia:

Challenging the East-West Paradigm
Olga V. Solovieva and Sho Konishi
ISBN: 9781621965534

"Japan’s Russia presents a re-interpretation of modern Japanese culture and society by focusing on the Russia-Japan relationship. Building on Sho Konishi’s earlier and important rethinking of visions of modernity in the early twentieth-century Russia-Japan relationship, this book expands the horizons by exploring a range of literary, artistic, intellectual, and political encounters. It also extends the timeframe from the late nineteenth century to the present day, offering fascinating and important insights." —Tessa Morris-Suzuki, Professor Emerita of Japanese History, Australian National University Read More..

Deterrence by Denial:

Theory and Practice
Alex S. Wilner and Andreas Wenger
ISBN: 9781621965503

“Alex Wilner and Andreas Wenger have assembled a stellar collection of contributors for a timely and penetrating examination of a form of deterrence that has never got the attention it deserves, because of the focus on punitive nuclear deterrence, yet has much wider strategic applications.” —Sir Lawrence Freedman, Emeritus Professor of War Studies, King's College London Read More..
