Book Reviews

Each issue of Asian Affairs contains a substantial number of reviews of recently published titles. Books to be reviewed are specially chosen by our Book Reviews Editor and the reviews are written by both RSAA members and members of the wider public with a particular interest in the book’s subject or geographical region of focus. We are always looking for new reviewers, so contact the RSAA office if you are interested in writing a review.

Our back catalogue of reviews is now available to read online. If you are keen to purchase a book having read the review, please click on the relevant link to buy it from Amazon: the RSAA will then receive a percentage of the sale price, helping the Society continue its educational work.
