Meet our Authors: Narayani Basu – April 2016

Narayani Basu is an independent scholar and journalist, with a background in Chinese foreign policy and a specialisation in US-China relations. She has written and published extensively on these subjects. This is her first book.

Under Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Narayani has authored The United States and China: Competing Discourses of Regionalism in East Asia.


Narayani describes the experience of working with Cambridge Scholars Publishing:

My hunt for publishing houses to bring out my first book, The United States and China: Competing Discourses of Regionalism in East Asia, was fruitless until late 2014. Most houses were reluctant to publish a young independent scholar who had not yet attained her PhD. When I wrote to Cambridge Scholars Publishing, however, I was pleasantly surprised. The team that got in touch with me was not only very happy to publish my book, but entirely appreciative of its substance. Since I was a first-time author, I had a number of questions about the publishing process. My queries were always promptly and helpfully answered. There was always one member of the editorial team who was present to deal with any questions or changes I suggested, as far as proofs and cover designs were concerned.

The finished product was released in April 2015, and the book has found its way onto the shelves of libraries worldwide. I could not have asked for better editorial assistance, global outreach or marketing. As a young, first-time writer, Cambridge Scholars met and exceeded every expectation I had. Publishing with them has been a wonderful experienceone I would not hesitate to repeat!
