Monsoon: Journal of the Indian Ocean Rim is inviting submissions for Book Reviews and Book Review Essays. Monsoon is a new interdisciplinary journal publishing original and innovative research that analyzes the cultural, historical, and political circumstances that have shaped—and currently affect—the coastal societies of the Indian Ocean. Monsoon welcomes Book Reviews (1000-1500 words) that engage with recently published books (within the past 3 years) Book Review Essays (3000 words) (including both notes and references) of two or three recently published books (within the past 5 years) that focus on a particular topic and overall speak to the aims of the journal. The Monsoon Book Review Editors include Franziska Fay from Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz, Firat Oruc from Georgetown University, and John Thabiti Willis from The Africa Institute. To submit a book review for consideration Please contact the Book Review Editor (Franziska Fay at franzifa@uni-mainz.de) with the title(s) of the book(s) you would like to review. Author Guidelines All potential authors are encouraged to contact the Book Review Editor before submitting a complete review to make sure that the books they propose have not already been reviewed and are appropriate for review. The editors reserve the right to reject or return for revision any submitted material on the grounds of inappropriate subject matter, quality, length, or non-conformity with the 17th edition of the Chicago Manual of Style. Aims and Scope Monsoon aims to raise the profile of Indian Ocean studies, bringing research on the societies, arts, and cultures of the basin to a wide audience. It also fills a glaring gap in the extant literature on the Indian Ocean region, which has sidelined African and Gulf societies. With an eye cast toward expanding knowledge on the connections forged across diverse environments and cultures, the journal is a critical resource among, and in conversation with, other journals on oceanic and global studies. The Africa Institute, in collaboration with Duke University Press, aims to publish original, cutting-edge research essays as well as special thematic issues that provide analysis of cultural, historical, and political circumstances that have shaped, and currently affect, the littoral societies of the Indian Ocean.
