Editorial Reviews


This is an important and stimulating work, and it deserves to be widely read.
--Richard S. Horowitz (Journal of Asian Studies 2009-02-01)

An important addition to the body of literature on the period of Korea's opening.
--J. E. Hoare (Asian Affairs 2010-03-01)

Its rich analysis of the Qing's interventionism sheds fresh and more varied light on interpreting Qing China's imperialism into Choson Korea at the turn of the twentieth century, not only in the history of Sino-Korean relation but in the larger historical and regional context of imperialism of the world.
--Jungwon Kim (Korean Studies 2009-09-01)

This is a fine piece of diplomatic and political history that should become standard reading for anyone interested in the process of imperialism in late nineteenth-century East Asia.
--Kenneth M. Swope (Pacific Affairs 2009-09-01)
