This Spring issue of Cross-Currents: East Asian History and Culture Review features a reexamination of China’s rich maritime history. Guest editors Eugenio Menegon, Philip Thai, and Xing Hang begin the special issue introduction describing how the seaways of Asia have fostered cultural exchange and economic integration. They write:

The liminal maritime zone surrounding China remains a paradox between seas and ports teeming with legal and illegal exchange and governmental policies attempting to monopolize and restrict that exchange. Vast and fluid, maritime China has long hindered state control and fostered connections determined as much by bottom-up economic and cultural logic as by top-down official impositions.

This special issue includes the following scholarly articles.
