CCAS Statement of Purpose
Critical Asian Studies
continues to be inspired by the statement of purpose formulated in 1969 by its parent organization, the Committee of Concerned  Asian Scholars (CCAS). CCAS ceased to exist as an organization in 1979,but the BCAS board decided in 1993 that the CCAS Statement of Purpose should be published in our journal at least once a year.
We first came together in opposition to the brutal aggression of the United States in Vietnam and to the complicity or silence of our profession with regard to that policy. Those in the field of Asian studies bear responsibility for the consequences of theirresearch and the political posture of their profession. We areconcerned about the present unwillingness of specialists to speak out against the implications of an Asian policy committed to en-suring American domination of much of Asia. We reject the le-gitimacy of this aim, and attempt to change this policy. Werecognize that the present structure of the profession has oftenperverted scholarship and alienated many people in the field.The Committee of Concerned Asian Scholars seeks to develop ahumane and knowledgeable understanding of Asian societiesand their efforts to maintain cultural integrity and to confrontsuch problems as poverty, oppression, and imperialism. We real-ize that to be students of other peoples, we must first understandour relations to them.CCAS wishes to create alternatives to the prevailing trends inscholarship on Asia, which too often spring from a parochialcultural perspective and serve selfish interests and expansion-ism. Our organization is designed to function as a catalyst, acommunications network for both Asian and Western scholars, aprovider of central resources for local chapters, and a commu-nity for the development of anti-imperialist research.
