2020 is JCA’s 50th anniversary. As part of the celebrations for the Journal, with our publisher, we are creating several free-access virtual special issues. The first of these is a collection of 40 articles by former and current editors of the Journal.
From co-founding editor Malcolm Caldwell’s “The role of the peasantry in the revolution” in Volume 1, Issue 1, to current editor-in-chief Kevin Hewison’s recent studies on Thailand, the depth and breadth of JCA’s editorial contributions offer unique insight into Asia’s economic, political and social development. Also included are Bruce McFarlane’s political economy and Peter Limqueco’s interviews with significant leaders in the region, Prince Souphanouvong and Pridi Banomyong.
