About this product
- DescriptionThis new integrated history discusses the development of China, Japan and Korea from the dawn of the modern age to the present, bringing together the threads that tie these neighbours together and narrating clearly how they have arrived where they are on the world stage. Each chapter covers parallel political, social, ecomic and cultural developments in the region, beginning by setting the world context for the period and ending by tying together the developments in China, Japan and Korea, showing how they resembled and influenced each other.Boxes feature the lives of individual East Asians, adding their personal stories. By placing the histories of China, Japan and Korea in parallel, this book revolutionizes the way East Asian history is taught, providing a clear vision of both the common bonds and distinct characteristics of these three great cultures.
