This fourth edition, like its predecessors, is addressed to college and university students and to the general reader seeking a systematic introduction to the history of Eastern Asia during the past century.  As in previous editions, the emphasis is on the impact of the West on Eastern Asia and the resulting response of Asia to the Western invasion.  While the focus is therefore international rather than national, the basic theme is not diplomacy or international relations as such, but rather the clash of emerging national aims and cultural ambitions as East and West have met.
