With China’s economic boom, continuous political stability, and increasing influence, it is time to ask if the trajectories of the Chinese Revolution--its troubled interaction with the world market, its national independence movements, its pursuit of egalitarianism, communism, and socialism, and its post-socialist reform—could be understood as a meaningful and consistent historical experience. It is important now to see how China’s past efforts have contributed or obstructed its progress since the Qing empire was thrust into the international system of nation-states in the late 19th century. This series aims to place the study of China in the contexts of the international system of nation-states, global capitalist and market expansion, imperialist rivalry, the Cold War, and recent waves of economic globalization. It welcomes analytical attempts to frame intellectual, historical, and cultural analysis conducive to dialectical relations between these categories. Ideas will not be studied in the abstract but be set in motion and intertwined with praxis through analysis of historical contexts and enriched by close analysis of aesthetic texts, such as literature, narratives, and phenomena of everyday life.

Time, Astronomy, and Calendars: Texts and Studies brings together the fields of astronomy, astrology, calendars, chronology, and time reckoning, from Antiquity to the early modern period. These closely interrelated fields transcended ethnic, linguistic, and religious boundaries, especially in the medieval and early modern periods. This explains the importance of a single series covering the works of pagan, Christian, Islamic, Jewish, and other authors, written in languages including Greek, Latin, Arabic, Hebrew, and others. This series will focus on the Near East, Mediterranean, and Europe, but will not exclude contributions on astronomy, the calendar, and related fields from other parts of the world within the same time period.

The series published an average of one volume per year over the last 5 years.
