Call for Papers - The Nancy Bernkopf Tucker and Warren I. Cohen Books on American-East Asian Relations (no deadline)
Columbia University Press is pleased to announce the creation of the Nancy Bernkopf Tucker and Warren I. Cohen Books on AmericanEast Asian Relations series. The series is named after noted diplomatic historians and Columbia University Press authors Nancy Bernkopf Tucker (1948-2012) and Warren I. Cohen.
The goals of the series are to publish high-quality, rigorously researched works in the academic fields in which Tucker was involved.
Selection of books written by new and established scholars will begin in late 2013 and will concentrate in the areas of political science, international affairs, diplomatic history, Asian history, and Asian studies. The press will be able to draw at least $15,000 from the fund to help support the cost of publishing and promoting each new title. The series aims to publish one or two new titles every year.
The series is made possible from a generous donation by Nancy Bernkopf Tucker and Warren I. Cohen. Before her death Dr. Tucker set in motion plans for the series, which was completed after her death by her husband, Professor Cohen.
Professor Cohen remarks, This series is intended as a monument to Nancy Bernkopf Tucker, a great scholar, a superb teacher, and my beloved wife. Publication of works in her chosen fields will help keep her goals alive and ensure that she is never forgotten.
Scholarly integrity for the series will be maintained by the internationally distinguished academics serving as series editors:
Thomas Christensen (Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University), Mark Bradley (University of Chicago) and Rosemary Foot (St. Antonys College, University of Oxford).
Those interested in publishing in the series should contact Anne Routon, senior editor at Columbia University Press (email@example.com) with a proposal containing a brief description of the content and focus of the book, a table of contents or chapter outline, literature review and market analysis, and professional information about the author, including previous publications.
