Asian Anthropology seeks to bring interesting new anthropo-logical research on Asia to a global audience. Until now, anthropologists writing on Asian topics in English have had to depend largely on Western-based journals to publish their works. Given the increasing number of indigenous anthropologists and anthropologists based in Asia, now is the time for a new anthropology journal that is globally refereed but editorially Asian-based. Asian Anthropology is editorially based in Hong Kong, but welcomes contri-butions from anthro-pologists and anthropology-related scholars throughout the world with an interest in Asia, especially East and Southeast Asia. The journal provides a forum for anthropologists working on Asia, in the broadest sense of the term “Asia.”
 
The inaugural issue of ASIAN ANTHROPOLOGY will be published in June 2002, on the theme "Cultural Transformation in East Asia." ASIAN ANTHROPOLOGY is published by the Chinese University Press for the Department of Anthropology, the Chinese University of Hong Kong and the Hong Kong Anthropological Society.
