A History of Asia is the only text to cover the area known as "monsoon Asia"--India, China, Southeast Asia, Korea, and Japan--from the earliest of times to the present.

 

Written by leading scholar Rhoads Murphey, the book's extensive analysis integrates the complex and diverse political, social, intellectual, and economic histories of this area with an engaging and lively style of writing. Popular because of its scope and coverage, as well as its illustrations, maps, and many boxed primary sources, the new edition of A History of Asia continues as a leader in the field of Asian history.

Book News Annotation:

Which developed trade with the West first, Korea or Japan? What regions of Asia did Britain fail to colonize? Murphey (history, U. of Michigan) has thoroughly updated his undergraduate survey text to include new developments in research on prehistoric Asia, Asian religions and cultures, the development of ancient and medieval civilizations in India and China, early and medieval Southeast Asia, early classical and medieval Japan and Korea, Mughal India and Central Asia, imperial splendor in China in the Ming Dynasty, the rise of Manchu China and Tokugawa Japan, and the emergence of British power in India and the triumph of imperialism in Asia. Particularly interesting is his work on nationalism and revolution in India and China, the struggle for Asia from 1922 to 1945, and the roles of Korea and Southeast Asia in the modern world. Includes maps, documents, a chronology and well-chosen illustrations. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
