Social Science in Asia Monograph Series
The Social Sciences in Asia Monograph Series was initiated by the editorial team of the Asian Journal of Social Science at the Department of Sociology, National University of Singapore. This Series was originally called, Asian Social Science Series, with Brill and Times Academic Press co-publishing the first three volumes between 2001 and 2002. It was renamed 'Social Sciences in Asia' in 2003 and now carries only the Brill imprint. Published under the imprint of Brill Academic Publishers, Leiden, the Series publishes original material and revised editions of special issues of the Asian Journal of Social Science. All manuscripts are reviewed anonymously by two expert readers in the field.

The Series welcomes submissions from sociologists, anthropologists, political scientists, economists, geographers, historians and cultural studies specialists working on any aspect of Asia. Its inter-disciplinary orientation serves to encompass a broad range of theoretical and substantive interests. It has thus far published 4 monographs and several others are in the pipeline at various stages of production.
