Abstract

As with all editors, there comes a time to pass the mantle to others. With the publication of this double issue of Asian Perspectives (39 : 1±2), I hand the editor- ship of the journal to Miriam T. Stark of the University of Hawai`i at Manoa and Patrick V. Kirch of the University of California at Berkeley. Miriam has already assumed editorial responsibility and has been of great assistance in putting together this issue. She and Pat, as co-editors, will hereafter split responsibility for the journal geographicallyÐbetween Asia and Oceania, respectively. I have been involved with producing Asian Perspectives since 1988 and o½cially became editor in 1992. During this time, the journal has re-established its pre- eminence in the archaeology of Asia and the Paci®c. While there is a tendency to view Asian Perspectives as regional in focus, its geographical scopeÐSouth Asia to Northeast Asia, Australia east to Rapa Nui and north to Hawai`iÐcovers nearly one-half of the planet, an area larger than many prestigious archaeological journals. We have encouraged researchers outside the US to submit papers; the diverse nationalities of the contributors attest to our success in making AP atruly international publication (comparable to e.g., Antiquity).
