Abstract:

The concept of "Eastern Asia" is clearly defined for the student, then linked to a discussion of the geographical composition of the region. The authors go on to examine the major traditions of the six countries, including their relations with one another; the impact of European colonialism; political, economic, and social developments since World War II; and finally, Eastern Asia in a global context. East and Southeast Asia's unusual thematic organization and its multidisciplinary approach - topics in sociology, anthropology, economics, and world history are all explored - make it perfect for use in undergraduate survey courses such as "Introduction to Asia."
