Designed for the East Asian history course, these texts feature the latest scholarship on the region and offer a range of cultural, political, economic, and intellectual history. Coverage is balanced among East Asian regions, with approximately 20 percent of the complete volume focused on Korea, an area that has become increasingly important in East Asian courses and in world politics.Special attention is devoted to coverage of gender and material culture, themes that are reinforced through the text's pedagogical features. Color inserts illustrate the rich artistic heritage of East Asia and bolster the coverage of material culture.
