The Asia Center Publications Program is one of the world’s most widely respected publishers of scholarly books in East Asian Studies, publishing about 15 new titles per year. The program has published nearly 500 titles since its founding in the 1950s; it became part of the Asia Center in 1998. In the past decade, books published by the Asia Center have won more than a dozen major awards in their respective fields.
Asia Center titles in print may be purchased from our distributor, Harvard University Press. Through collaborations with JSTOR, Project Muse, Proquest, and the ACLS Humanities E-book Program, nearly all of our titles are now also available digitally. In 2020, we began to offer our e-book collection through Brill, where readers can view and purchase downloadable e-books of Asia Center titles.
