Asian Studies e-book collection



With over 340 titles, the Asian Studies e-book collection reflects Duke University Press's continued, interdisciplinary engagement with Asia. Moving beyond traditional area studies, the collection includes titles addressing individual Asian countries as well as regional and transnational issues. These books are theoretically rich, engaging with postcolonial theory, anthropology, gender studies, and cultural studies. In addition to histories steeped in new critical approaches, the collection includes important work on popular culture, music, film, and art. The collection exists in dialogue with Duke University Press's many Asian studies journals.
