We are delighted to announce the establishment of an important new Renaissance Books series to be known as Imperialism in East Asia [IEA], edited by Robert Fletcher (Warwick) and Teyhun Ma (Sheffield).

To be launched in Spring 2020, Imperialism in East Asia will provide an important new focus on the modern history and enduring legacies of imperialism in East Asia, providing a platform for critical exploration of the histories of imperialism in China, Korea and Japan, comparative studies of the phenomenon, and research tracing the connections between imperialisms in the region. In particular, it will seek to showcase research that brings new or neglected sources before academic and informed readerships, and welcomes contributions by new and established authors  For further information write to: and .
