For one semester/quarter undergraduate courses in the History of Modern East Asia or Modern East Asian Civilizations. In East Asia: Identities and Change in the Modern World, accomplished historian R.

This text explores modern East Asian history through the themes of identities and change. What your colleagues are saying about East Asia: Identities and Change in the Modern World: "I am quite impressed by East Asia: Identities and Change in the Modern World. For the majority of professors Schoppa's text will become and instant classic. It is a major improvement on what is available. I really like the author's ability to examine diverse identities and to confront our simplistic views of Asia." - David Atwill, Pennsylvania State University "East Asia: Identities and Change in the Modern World is impressive, a great contribution to the field. It tells the story of East Asia since the seventeenth century in a lucid way that takes into account both traditional interpretations and modern scholarship. One of the strengths of the text is its willingness to take strong interpretive stands, even as it attempts a balanced portrayal. Another strength is the inclusion of Vietnam and Taiwan, regions ignored by many survey texts." - James L. Huffman, Wittenberg University "I think East Asia: Identities and Change in the Modern World is terrific, comprehensive, accessible, and with a comfortable style for undergaduates. The focus on identities is very smart." - Sue Gronewold, Kean University
