Editorial Reviews


“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
