Finally arrived

from Press News, posted 02/29/2016 - 14:30

After a year of 48-hour days and frantic juggling, first copies of the printed volume of End of Empire: 100 Days in 1945 that Changed Asia and the World, edited by David P. Chandler, Robert Cribb and Li Narangoa, finally reached the NIAS Press office this morning. Copies of the book are now available in Europe and the Americas, and very soon throughout Asia.

Very pleased with the result were David Stuligross (with book in hand) and Gerald Jackson (holding a bundle of printer's proofs for the book that coincidentally also arrived this morning, from our Singapore printer).

The online face of the 1945 project – at www.EndOfEmpire.Asia – has been live for several months now. However, in the last few days interest in the website has exploded dramatically. It would be nice if this heightened interest was reflected in sales of the book.

The website has been especially the result of David's creative mind and huge workload. He is now also turning his attention to a series of spinoff country-specific titles. Watch this space.
