  1. Matteo Ricci and the Catholic Mission to China, 1583–1610

    R. Po-chia Hsia

    Matteo Ricci and the Catholic Mission to China, 1583–1610

    Series: Passages: Key Moments in History

    "A highly accessible introduction to the history of the Jesuits in China. Hsia offers a clear and concise overview of the key figures in this crucial episode of intercultural encounter: the first intellectual and cultural meeting of Europeans and Chinese. . . . In addition to providing a broad vision of the European and Asian contexts for Ricci’s work in the introductory essay, Hsia gives a valuable selection of documents from both Chinese and Western sources in translation . . . [including] items that genuinely demonstrate the two sides of this cultural exchange."
         —Liam Matthew Brockey, Professor of History, Michigan State University

    Ian Barrow

    The East India Company, 1600–1858

    Series: Passages: Key Moments in History

    "Ian Barrow has written a concise yet engaging, rich, and detailed history of the East India Company—its rise to power, evolution, and eventual demise. This book will be read with great interest by students as well as those general readers seeking a better knowledge of the world's first multi-national corporation and its important influence in the creation of the modern South Asian world."  —Michael Dodson, Indiana University Bloomington

  3. The Russian Revolution and Its Global Impact

    Jonathan Daly and Leonid Trofimov

    The Russian Revolution and Its Global Impact

    Series: Passages: Key Moments in History

    "Thoughtful, readable, and concise, this little book sets the Russian Revolution in its global context. Though primarily focused on the period from 1917 to the 1930s, it nicely illustrates the many ways in which the effects of the Revolution are still being felt today." —Rex Wade, George Mason University
