In addition to "Boats, Barbarians, and Bandits" in the latest issue of JCMH, Kenneth M. Swope has another publication to report: “Revolution or Evolution? Military Development in Early Modern China, ca. 1350-1750,” in Global Military Transformations: Change and Continuity, 1450-1800, edited by Jeremy Black (Rome: Societa Italiana di Storia Militare, 2023), pp. 453-480.
