SEAP Publication, A Duterte Reader, Best Seller at AAS Conference

A Duterte Reader

Recent and forthcoming titles from SEAP Publications were a big hit at last month's Association for Asian Studies annual conference in Washington, DC. SEAP Publications Managing Editor Sarah Grossman was at the meeting and said that there was a real vibrancy in the air, and many more attendees than in previous years. Listen to Sarah's experiences and overall impressions of the conference in the latest episode of the Cornell University Press podcast (available on both SoundCloud and iTunes ).

At the conference, Nicole Curato's new edited volume A Duterte Reader emerged as the most popular book at the SEAP booth and quickly sold out of physical copies. Other SEAP titles that were also of strong interest included the newly published book by the late May Mayko Ebihara - Svay, as well as the forthcoming books by Khairudi Aljunied, Hamka and Islam, and Kirsten Endres & Ann Marie Leshkowich, Traders in Motion. The three most popular books from Cornell were Julie Chernov Hwang's new book on Indonesian jihadists Why Terrorists Quit, Charlene Makley's The Battle for Fortune, and Di Wang's The Teahouse under Socialism
