Housed in the East Asia Program, the Cornell East Asia Series (CEAS) is an internationally known, award-winning scholarly press bringing quality scholarship and unique research by authors worldwide to scholarly audience and general readers. Since its inception in 1973 as a venue for publishing papers submitted to the East Asia Program, the Series has grown into its current status as a publisher with a scholarly reputation for quality, filling a niche for scholars seeking specialized academic titles. To date nearly two hundred volumes have been published, with titles available digitally through Project MUSE and for free through the Cornell University Library (http://ceas.library.cornell.edu). We publish on subjects relative to the cultures of East Asia, covering topics in history, culture and society, and translations of literary works. The series produces scholarly monographs, specialized textbooks, and well-integrated volumes of articles on China, Japan, and Korea (North and South). We invite authors to submit scholarly monographs, translations of literature and major work of literary criticism, social analysis, specialized textbooks, well-integrated volumes of essays, and works on modern Japanese poetry.
