9780321340542: History of Asia, A (5th Edition)

Written by a leading scholar, 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. Its extensive analysis integrates the complex and diverse political, social, intellectual, and economic histories of this area with an engaging and lively style. Popular because of its scope and coverage, the fifth edition of A History of Asia contains new, boxed features that emphasize cross-cultural comparisons and expanded treatment of Southeast Asia. Additionally, a timeline and discussion questions have been added to each chapter, thereby making the book even more student friendly.
