9780321234902: Modern East Asia: An Integrated History

Places the histories of Japan, China and Korea in a global as well as regional perspective.

  

Modern East Asia details the history of the region while recognizing the intellectual, religious, artistic, economic and scientific contributions East Asians have made to the contemporary world. The three national narratives of China, Japan and Korea are told separately within each chapter, and the text emphasizes connections among them as well as the unique evolution of each society, allowing readers to experience the individual countries' histories as well as the region's history as a whole.

 

The text takes into consideration the radical changes in the field of history in the past 40 years, as the authors have incorporated scholarship in areas such as gender studies, social history and minority histories. While reading social, economic and personal histories, students will uncover the evolution of family structures, peripheral and outcast communities, the sociopolitical power of language and literature, the rise of nationalism and regional trading networks. Attention is also paid to environmental and diplomatic themes.

He is a member of the Association for Asian Studies and its regional affiliate.

She currently serves as the associate editor of the US-Japan Women's Journal as well as the president of the Pacific Coast Branch of the American History Association.

Michael A. Robinson teaches in the department of East Asian languages and cultures and the department of history at Indiana University.

Robinson is the author of Korea's Twentieth Century Odyssey: A Short History  (University of Hawaii Press, 2007), Cultural Nationalism in Colonial Korea (1988) and co-author of Korea Old and New: A History (1991). He also co-edited Colonial Modernity in Korea, 1910-1945 (Harvard East Asia Council Publications, 2000).

Review:

“The scholarship is very soundly interpreted and up-to-date. Clear references to recent work shines through for the informed reader but in a way that the uninformed reader will not be bogged down by references... The narrative style is engaging and explains East Asian history far better than most other books out there.”

                -Ethan Segal, Michigan State University

 

“The three narratives are balanced and explain their connection with each other. I also like the fact that the authors changed the order of narratives between mostly China and Japan and sometimes begin with Korea. It helps an instructor to divide the time relatively evenly in their lecture of modern East Asian history.”

                -Yosuke Nirei, Indiana University, South Bend

 

“The greatest strengths of the book are its even treatment of Korea, Japan, and China. It is also effective at engaging important historiographical debates without losing its strong narrative thread.”

                -James Carter, Saint Joseph
