Global Asian Political Economy series

Series Editor: Salvatore Babones, University of Sydney

The economic globalisation of the last 40 years has been driven mainly by the integration of East Asia into the larger global economy. Global value chains have come to span multiple national borders as never before, and Asia continues to play a leading role in shaping the structure of the global economy and its governance. Despite widespread acknowledgement that the world has changed, there is still a relative lack of integrative academic studies of Asia’s economic integration and Asia’s role in the global economy.

Global Asian Political Economy will publish work which focuses on the articulation between Asia and the global economy. Interdisciplinary in its scope, the series will publish monographs and edited volumes which place the Asian experience in a global context. It will be of interest to academics and students in a wide range of disciplines and subject areas.

Call for proposals

The series welcomes both single-authored and edited volumes of between 60,000 and 80,000 words in length. We are keen to hear from scholars in Asia, although we welcome proposals from scholars of Asia wherever they may be based. The GAPE publishing process begins with the submission of a formal proposal that can be made at any stage in the writing process: before starting the book, with a partial draft or with a full draft manuscript in hand. After an initial assessment by the editorial board, each proposal will be peer-reviewed by a minimum of two academic referees. If the book is commissioned for inclusion in the series, the final manuscript will again be peer-reviewed before it is accepted for publication.

If you would like to submit a proposal, or to discuss ideas, then please contact Bristol University Press editor Paul Stevens: paul.stevens@bristol.ac.uk
