“Fascinating…[Amrith] gives voice—and an identity—to one of the most complex and culturally interesting regions of the world…Amrith’s excavation of this culture is painstaking and meticulous. He digs deep into the archives, drawing on journals, letters and of󰁦icial colonial records to assemble an account that dates back to the 󰁦irst millennium…The result of all this research is a textured biography of a region…A formidable work of scholarship…It is the sheer accumulation of information, and the multiple, interwoven strands in this profoundly interdisciplinary work, that yield such an impres-sive, multifaceted portrait…[A] remarkable book.”

“[Raghavan’s] superb analysis of the global intricacies of 1971 uses [a wide] lens with great precision to explain the breakup of Pakistan more convincingly than any preceding account…[He] show[s] how the most powerful democracy in the world could become complicit in a mass slaughter, and how in turn India—the world’s largest democracy but also one of its poor-est and militarily weakest—was pushed to intervene to stop the slaughter…Raghavan [has] given us [an] indispensable stud[y] of one of the most sordid and important instances of horror and help.”

Another masterpiece from Choi Byonghyon. Integrating a remarkably wide range of expertise in classic Chinese, Korean history, Confucianism, geography, and East Asian political structures, Choi offers an accessible translation for modern readers and a model for the rest of the vast ‘veritable records’ of the Chosŏn Dynasty…Readers can follow T’aejo and his court through the hopes and challenges of the dy-nasty’s founding era, including national reconstruction, state formation and legitimacy, ideological transformation, and the nature of leadership.
The Annals of King T’aejo
 is a treasure trove for anyone interested in Korean and East Asian history.”

“Bose lucidly analyzes India’s ‘decentered democracy,’ in which power lies increasingly with the state governments… The willingness of most Indians to commit to multiple social identities has produced a distinctive form of democratic poli-tics. In revealing both the violence and the vitality of India’s democracy, Bose sees the country’s future prosperity and stability as anything but assured.”

Aside from providing a superb study of Pakistani civil– military relations, Shah makes an important and more general scholarly contribution: he explains why new polities fracture under challenging security environments and identi󰁦ies the impulses that compel generals to both shift their gaze abroad and intervene in politics.”

A bold and fascinating work. Manjapra moves decidedly and elegantly beyond conventional frameworks by writing a truly global history of intellectual exchange between Germany and India.
 Age of Entanglement
 is an ambitious and convincing account of the ways in which both sides were linked to—and enabled and constrained by—the structures and politics of empire.”

“Ebrey, a master historian of this period with an acute sense of the poignant and tragic, shows us, in this 󰁦irst English-language biography of Huizong, one of the most brilliantly cultured monarchs ever to have lived, and recounts his miserable end…Patricia Ebrey’s scholarly powers are amazing. I can think of few historians— Chinese or Western—of traditional China who could exceed or even match her knowledge of the arts so widely patronized and practiced by Huizong, from poetry and brushwork to music and gardening. Her ability to evaluate Song and later sources is a model for all scholars. Such books are an intense pleasure to read.”—Jonathan Mirsky,
