About the Author

Shiping Hua is the Calvin and Helen Lang Distinguished Chair in Asian Studies, Professor of Political Science, and Director of Asian Studies Program at the University of Louisville, USA.


Professor Shiping Hua has done a superb job in editing this major reference volume. The Handbook of Politics in Asia is encyclopedic in coverage. It offers in-depth discussions of a broad range of topics and themes for major countries and sub-regions of Asia. This is a must-have volume for every research library. Professor Dali L. Yang, The University of Chicago, USA The chapters of this handbook are brilliantly organized. They first provide full and systematic coverage, in East, Southeast, South, and Central Asia, of all regime types, foreign policies, development plans, and political cultures. Then they shift to interpretations of nationalism, regionalism, reforms, and diplomacy in three large states: China, India, and Japan. Pre-modern cultures are shown to have current effects. Anyone interested in Asia absolutely needs this book. Professor Lynn T. White III, Princeton University, USA This handbook, capably edited by Professor Shiping Hua, makes a major contribution to filling the gap in the general education curriculum. With informative chapters on everything from multilateral trade agreements to gender politics or internet management, all supplemented by rich graphic data, this book is ideal for courses in comparative politics or international relations or indeed for all interested readers. Professor Lowell Dittmer, UC Berkeley, USA
