Welcome to the first ever 2012 Asian and Middle East Studies Online Catalogue.

Within this catalogue you will be able to explore our extensive publishing programmes, research new forthcoming titles, search series and browse backlist titles.

Under our Major Works programme we have a diverse selection of series themed around the Asia Pacific, Central Asia, China, Japan, Korea and South Asia/South East-Asia. Spanning subject areas such as Business, Economics, Education, Law, Philosophy, Religion and Sociology to name but a few.

Our Routledge Library Editions programme offers you the chance to purchase multivolume collections on countries such as Japan, Iran and Egypt, religions like Islam and Buddhism and studies on the Arab Nation.

These sets can be purchased as collections or as individual volumes both in print and online as eBooks.

Finally through our Routledge Revivals programme we reissue 'out of print' books and timely reintroduce them into the modern world.

Discover essays on India, studies on feminism and socialism in China and read an analysis on Japanese life, thought, tourism and academic writing in Japan.
