East Asia: A Documentary History
The anthology East Asia: A Documentary History is designed to give readers a wide variety of primary source materials. The book features classic texts, diaries, treaties, editorials, and more from China, Japan, and Korea. Examination and consideration of these sources help readers develop analytical skills and reach their own conclusions about historical interpretations.
The chapters are organized chronologically and geographically. Chapter and source introductions provide valuable background information and help to place the sources in the appropriate historical context. Study questions follow each reading and there are additional analytical questions as well as suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter.
The primary sources in East Asia: A Documentary History are free to speak for themselves, providing insight into the political, economic, social, and cultural issues they address. The book is an excellent supplemental reader for standard narrative textbooks and is ideal for courses on East Asian history and civilization.
