The economic emergence of East Asia—first Japan, followed by the Little Dragons and Southeast Asia, and the recent rise of China, has produced a paradigm shift in the study of the East Asian regions. Not only has an earlier understanding based on adaptation to Western models given way to a re-evaluation of the interface between the local and the global, but scholarship itself has become increasingly transnational. This is evidenced in hitherto unseen levels of transnational collaboration, conferences and research programs, and the creation of on-line archives and virtual intellectual communities. East Asia, broadly defined to include both northeast and southeast Asia, has contributed greatly to this shift. This series aims at providing a platform for the products of this scholarship, encouraging interdisciplinary, transnational and comparative research on the countries and peoples of the East Asian region, and their regional and global interactions. In an effort to reflect the full range of collaborations that are now taking place across the globe this series will feature monographs and edited volumes as well as translated works that explore the global processes of change in East Asia and the historical role of East Asia in the creation of the institutions, ideas, and practices that constitute our contemporary world.

Since in the current global environmental and climate crisis East Asia will play a major role in negotiating solutions, it is vital to understand East Asian cultural variations in approaching and solving environmental challenges in the past, present, and future. The interdisciplinary volume Nature, Environment and Culture in East Asia. The Challenge of Climate Change, edited by Carmen Meinert, explores how cultural patterns and ideas have shaped a specific understanding of nature, how local and regional cultures develop(ed) coping strategies to adapt to environmental and climatic changes in the past and in the present and how various institutions and representatives might introduce their ideas and agendas in future environmental and climate policies on national levels and in international negotiating systems.
