Farewell Message from the Editor in Chief

"Parting is such sweet sorrow," we often say. With this issue of Asian Perspective I bid goodbye after more than twenty-two years as editor in chief. Retirement is probably well advised; it's never a good idea to think one can go on forever. However, I will miss working with such wonderful colleagues at the Institute for Far Eastern Studies and contributors from all over the world. Together we have achieved quite a few milestones: moving from a biannual publication to triannual and then quarterly in the 1990s; becoming an SSCI indexed publication in 2010; and being published by Lynne Rienner Publishers since 2011. Along the way, the quality and stature of Asian Perspective have risen, and it has become a top-notch journal in its field.

So thank you one and all, especially President Jae Kyu Park for the privilege of serving. I will continue on as senior adviser, helping my distinguished successor, Dr. Carla Freeman. With her background as director of the Foreign Policy Institute at the School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) of Johns Hopkins University, which publishes the SAIS Review of International Affairs, Dr. Freeman is a perfect fit with Asian Perspective. I step down knowing that the journal's future is in good hands.
