- DescriptionMark E. Byington explores the formation, history, and legacy of the ancient state of Puy, which existed in central Manchuria from the third century BCE until the late fifth century CE.

Nevertheless, until w its history and culture have been rarely touched upon in scholarly works in any language. The present volume, utilizing recently discovered archaeological materials from Northeast China as well as a wide variety of historical records, explores the social and political processes associated with the formation and development of the Puy state, and discusses how the historical legacy of Puy its historical memory contributed to modes of statecraft of later rtheast Asian states and provided a basis for a developing historiographical tradition on the Korean peninsula.
