Gender in Modern East Asia explores the history of women and gender in China, Korea, and Japan from the seventeenth century to the present. This unique volume treats the three countries separately within each time period while also placing them in global and regional contexts. Its transnational and integrated approach connects the cultural, economic, and social developments in East Asia to what is happening across the wider world.

The text focuses specifically on the dynamic histories of sexuality; gender ideology, discourse, and legal construction; marriage and the family; and the gendering of work, society, culture, and power. Important themes and topics woven through the text include Confucianism, writing and language, the role of the state in gender construction, nationalism, sexuality and prostitution, New Women and Modern Girls, feminisms, "comfort" women, and imperialism. Accessibly written and comprehensive, Gender in Modern East Asia is a much-needed contribution to the study of the region.

From the Back Cover:

A groundbreaking work that brings together the gender history of China, Japan, and Korea. Recommended textbook for gender historians and Modern East Asian specialists.”
Angelina Chin, Pomona College
This is the only book of its kind to provide a thorough and up-to-date analysis of gender in East Asia that is grounded in national and transnational contexts. It is suitable for undergraduates and graduate students, and covers the gendering of the private realms of marriage and family, as well as the discourses and power shifts related to work, law, and society.”
Cristina Zaccarini, Adelphi University
This is the first comprehensive single-volume textbook on gender in East Asia; it would be essential for anyone who teaches and studies gender/women of the region.”
Danke Li, Fairfield University
