CEAS 180 1943: China at the Crossroads   In the grand narrative of modern Chinese history, 1943 is usually passed over with little notice. However, in thirteen topical chapters, the achievements and disappointments of 1943 are explored in an effort to capture a moment in time, when China stood at the crossroads but the road ahead lay shrouded in the impenetrable fog of war.

CEAS 175 Sangaku Proofs: A Japanese Mathematician at Work   This interpretive translation of a suite of twenty-six related problems analyzed by Aida Yasuaki (1747–1817) gives readers unfamiliar with the premodern Japanese language access to a real wasan text. Instead of presenting and solving problems using modern techniques, Unger presents Aida’s own solutions, transcribing his calculations into familiar mathematical notation, highlighting connections between Aida’s work and both the mathematics of today and aspects of Japanese cultural history.
