Culture, Diplomacy and Interactions
Series Editor:
The era of globalization has witnessed both increased activities across borders and interactions between nations, especially between the East and the West. East and West: Culture, Diplomacy and Interactions aims to trace and investigate multiple-dimensional interactions between the East and the West from the Age of Sail to the Modern Era, culturally, socially, economically and diplomatically, with a focus on maritime history via and centered on port cities such as Macao, Goa, Melaka, Nagasaki in the East and their counterparts such as Lisbon, Seville, Amsterdam, London in the West. The series examines matters about empires, oceans, and human connections through changes in material lives and cultural politics, and analyzes the impact of the flow of cultural materials across oceans, such as artifacts, arts, goods, foods, books, knowledge, beliefs, etc., on port cities and urbanization. Particularly, it will provide readers with a new maritime vision of the East and Southeast Asian history of connections at the eastern end of the Maritime Silk Road, including the ports of East Indian Ocean and South China Sea: places from Nagasaki to Xiamen/Macao, from Singapore to Shanghai, from Hong Kong to Melbourne, etc. In doing so, it will unfold the process of formation and transformation of networks and fluxing space, generated or altered by trade, migrations, diplomacies, regional conglomerations, etc., illustrate the glocolization of religions, examine the relationship of culture/tradition and diplomatic strategy, and demonstrate the causes to miscommunication, misunderstanding, conflicts and confrontations between nations as well as appropriate reading, understanding and interpreting of each other.

East and West will include studies in such disciplines and area studies as maritime history, missionary history, intellectual history, international relations, arts, architecture, music, religious studies, and cultural studies. This series will feature monographs and edited volumes as well as translated works. It will be of interest to academics as well as general readers, including historians, artists, architects, diplomats, politicians, journalists, travelers, religious groups, businessmen, lawyers, among other groups.

The Sir Henry Wellcome Asian Series was established in 1995 in order to make available fine editions of the medical and scientific classics of Asia. The primary aim is to publish texts in their original languages, such as Chinese, Arabic, and Sanskrit. The Series also publishes translations of such editions into English, French or German. Additionally, the Series includes works that cover philological, biographical and bibliographical aspects of the field, and other works that promote knowledge of the textual basis of the subject, covering all periods up to modernity.
It is the view of the editors of the Series that for progress in understanding the history of Asian medicine and the allied sciences it is necessary to have access to critical editions of the surviving manuscripts and pre-modern books, in their original languages. Without such a firm textual basis, historical scholarship is built on an unsure foundation. The Series exists to provide readers with a reliable source of such works, and to provide text editors with a channel through which their specialized works may be published.
As well as strictly text-based publications, the series also welcomes high-quality secondary literature from a wide variety of disciplines and methodologies, including history, social sciences, and economics, provided they are solidly founded on clearly identified primary sources, and in some way illuminate such sources and their meaning for medical and scientific history. The series editors encourage scholars to embed their works in the wider context of history of science and medicine.
The Series is named after Sir Henry S. Wellcome (1853--1936) who did so much in his lifetime, and afterwards through the Trust that bears his name, to support and stimulate the study of the history of medicine. The series is supported by the Wellcome Centre for the History of Medicine at UCL, London, and the Institut für Geschichte der Medizin, Munich.

Textiles are among the oldest artifacts produced by Man. Even during prehistoric times the production of cloth involved large groups of people, and textiles were an important object of international trade, often over distances spanning over thousands of miles.Textiles and costume have throughout history expressed social function and status and inspired the highest forms of artistic expression. It was the development of dyes that constituted the beginnings of modern chemistry.
The Studies in Textile and Costume History are concerned with every aspect of textile and costume, no matter what age or geographical location. Subjects include: raw materials; dyes; nonwoven materials such as leather and felt; production techniques, from the raw material to weaving, sewing et cetera; design, fashion, art historical aspects;the uses of textiles and their rôle in society; trade;archaeology, and social and economic history of the craft; terminology.
The series includes monographs on substantial subjects, thematic collections of articles, handbooks, text editions, and translations.
The Volumes contribute to scholarly research. Their accessibility is enhanced by a proper organization of the contents and, wherever appropriate, by indexes.They include introductions placing the subjects in the context of pertinent developments of the time, and of current research. Text editions are as a rule accompanied by a translation on facing pages; translations are fully annotated; the introductions to both text editions and translations include full evaluations of the text concerned.
The Volumes are in English, occasionally in German or French.
