South Asian Review – a Taylor & Francis Publication
South Asian culture has become highly popular around the world. Films like Monsoon Wedding and Lagaan have reached large audiences. The world of Indian popular films is the subject of a London musical called Bombay Dreams , and young women from New York to Los Angeles are having their hands decorated with intricate traditional henna designs. South Asia is now chic in the West in the way that Japan was a decade ago.
The journal welcomes articles, research notes, and book reviews that focus on the dynamics of global change and development of Asian and African nations, societies, cultures, and the global community. Decisions on manuscripts will be taken as rapidly as possible. However, while it is hoped that a decision can be made in weeks, the refereeing process makes it impossible to predict the length of time that will be required to process any given manuscript. Only the Journal of Asian and African Studies has consistently straddled these two important rising regions with insightful scholarly comparisons and interactive analyses.
