“[An] entertaining and illuminating collection of essays… The chapters on Sukarno, by James Rush, and on Bhutto, by Farzana Shaikh, are exceptional.”
The Economist
A much-needed collection…Compared to many biographies of Western political leaders, these stories lack the commercial drama and overheated sensationalism of the bestselling variety, but that characteristic may be a welcome respite for many readers.”
Publishers Weekly

“Perceptive and learned…[Jalal] shows that Pakistan never went off the rails; it was, moreover, never a democracy in any mean-ingful sense. For its entire history, a military caste and its sup-porters in the ruling class have formed an establishment’ that de󰁦ined their narrow interests as the nation’s…
The Struggle for Pakistan
 traces Pakistan’s decline all the way up to the present.
—Isaac Chotiner,

Jalal offers a clear, chronological account of how the army, in competition with civilians, has misruled Pakistan.”

“This story transcends Palmeiro’s life…Indeed, it is Palmeiro’s own letters and his lively accounts of his journeys, along with other sources, that Brockey puts to excellent use in his account of Jesuit enterprise in the Portuguese Empire in maritime Asia…In crafting Palmeiro’s life story Brockey brilliantly accomplishes his goal of shedding light on different historical contexts as well as the problems and questions of the early modern world…This well-written and enjoyable book illustrates how Palmeiro’s 󰁦inal days until his death marked the end of a generation of Jesuits whose dreams materialized in the expansion of Christianity in Asia.”Ana Carolina Hosne,

“Chang analyzes the past 300 years of Sino-American relations, as the world’s most populous nation is poised to regain eco-nomic supremacy. It’s a succinct, sharply focused analysis.”
Publishers Weekly 
“Chang argues that ties between [China and the United States] are not predestined but that the futures of both nations are nonetheless deeply intertwined.

“With the support of extensive, highly original, and reliable research, Xu Guoqi has written a truly pathbreaking book, one with the scholarly and intellectual power to rede󰁦ine some key dimensions of studies on international history in general and Chinese–American relations in particular. It is a book that concentrates on people rather than on the state, government, and various institutions…A series of fascinating stories.

A story of what happens when armies fail to re󰁦lect the societies they defend, as well as a meditation on Juvenal’s famous question
quis custodiet ipsos custodes
? —who shall guard the guards?…Wilkinson’s book is an excellent guide to the world’s biggest democratic army. It is also a 󰁦ine answer to Juvenal’s cautionary question.

“In
The Sacred Routes of Uyghur History 
, [Thum] documents how the Muslims of the region now called Xinjiang understood their past in the three centuries before the Cultural Revolution. Then he explains how that historical identity was torn apart, by inside and outside forces, in the course of the 20th century…What makes
Sacred Routes
 so valuable is its coverage of both the modern and pre-modern periods, taking us back before the Chinese conquest of Altishahr. This enables Thum to show what happened to the older cultural technologies of manuscript, shrine, and pilgrimage in the age of mass printing, competing nationalisms, and commercial tourism…This is Uyghur history as everyman’s history.”Nile Green,
