A History of Asia is the only text to cover the area known as "monsoon Asia"--India, China, Southeast Asia, Korea, and Japan--from the earliest of times to the present.
Written by leading scholar Rhoads Murphey, the book's extensive analysis integrates the complex and diverse political, social, intellectual, and economic histories of this area with an engaging and lively style of writing. Popular because of its scope and coverage, as well as its illustrations, maps, and many boxed primary sources, the new edition of A History of Asia continues as a leader in the field of Asian history.
