End of Empire website

NIAS Press (NIAS = Nordic Institute of Asian Studies) has set up a very interesting web site, as an experiment with new publishing ideas, which my library colleague at NIAS Ms Inga-Lill Blomkvisk has shared with us. The website is called End of Empire and is designed as a newspaper and  contains news from Asia from the 100 days following Hiroshima 70 years ago, updated daily with that day’s news. NIAS Press is collaborating with nearly a hundred international scholars to produce the website which will eventually result in a printed book. The website is freely available and contains interesting documents, analyses and photos.

One thought on “End of Empire website

  1. Even without India and the Near East, End of Empire achieves very high levels of quality, diversity, and appeal. Distinctive. Engaging. Informative. Factual. Attractive.
    Quite a nice job all the way around, and definitely recommended.
    Available from online booksellers, local bookshops, or directly from the Nordic Institute of Asian Studies Press.
