Dr Kevin Cawley, Head of the Department of Asian Studies, has multiple entries just published in the new Routledge Encyclopedia of Chinese History (2017). Dr Cawley's entries are mainly related to Confucian and Neo-Confucian philosophy, as well as others which deal directly with Korea.


The Encyclopedia of Chinese History covers the entire span of Chinese history from the period known primarily through archaeology to the present day. Treating Chinese history in the broadest sense, the Encyclopedia includes coverage of the frontier regions of Manchuria, Mongolia, Xinjiang and Tibet that have played such an important role in the history of China Proper and will also include material on Taiwan, and on the Chinese diaspora.

In A-Z format with entries written by experts in the field of Chinese Studies, the Encyclopedia will be an invaluable resource for students of Chinese history, politics and culture.
