Travels in Manchuria and Mongolia : a feminist poet from Japan encounters prewar China by Akiko Yosano( )

12 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 2,148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Yosano Akiko was a highly acclaimed Japanese poet. She was also a prominent feminist. In 1928 she was invited to travel around areas with a strong Japanese presence in China's northeast. This is her account of that journey
Articulating the Sinosphere : Sino-Japanese relations in space and time by Joshua A Fogel( )

17 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,940 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The model I have drawn here attempts to accommodate both time and space. It may appear similar to the more old-fashioned 'Chinese world order, ' and indeed there are some similarities, but that older model failed to account for change over time and was, first and foremost, concerned with diplomatic relations. The model of the Sinosphere attempts to embrace intraregional relations in all their varying cultural and political complexities. The nature of Sino-Japanese ties may have been altogether different in the last third of the nineteenth century from what they were within the Sinosphere, but memory of the bond that had long linked China and Japan, I would argue, remained, if only as a lingering recollection. The Treaty of Amity, signed in 1871 ... bespeaks a time when respect worked both ways-a graded respect, to be sure, but nonetheless something tying the two states other than power and military obligations."--Jacket
The blue wolf : a novel of the life of Chinggis Khan by Yasushi Inoue( )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 1,546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the world's most ruthless warriors, Chinggis Khan conquered nearly all of Asia in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, transforming the scattered and impoverished Mongols into an exceptionally proud and powerful nation. In this riveting and thoroughly researched portrait, Japan's celebrated epic novelist drives at the root of the khan's great desires and insatiable appetite for supremacy
Maiden voyage : the Senzaimaru and the creation of modern Sino-Japanese relations by Joshua A Fogel( )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 1,234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After centuries of virtual isolation, during which time international sea travel was forbidden outside of Japan's immediate fishing shores, Japanese shogunal authorities in 1862 made the unprecedented decision to launch an official delegation to China by sea. Concerned by the fast-changing global environment, they had witnessed the ever-increasing number of incursions into Asia by European powers-not the least of which was Commodore Perry's arrival in Japan in 1853-54 and the forced opening of a handful of Japanese ports at the end of the decade. The Japanese reasoned that it was only a matter of time before they too encountered the same unfortunate fate as China; their hope was to learn from the Chinese experience and to keep foreign powers at bay. They dispatched the Senzaimaru to Shanghai with the purpose of investigating contemporary conditions of trade and diplomacy in the international city. Japanese from varied domains, as well as shogunal officials, Nagasaki merchants, and an assortment of deck hands, made the voyage along with a British crew, spending a total of ten weeks observing and interacting with the Chinese and with a handful of Westerners. Roughly a dozen Japanese narratives of the voyage were produced at the time, recounting personal impressions and experiences in Shanghai. The Japanese emissaries had the distinct advantage of being able to communicate with their Chinese hosts by means of the "brush conversation" (written exchanges in literary Chinese). For their part, the Chinese authorities also created a paper trail of reports and memorials concerning the Japanese visitors, which worked its way up and down the bureaucratic chain of command. This was the first official meeting of Chinese and Japanese in several centuries. Although the Chinese authorities agreed to few of the Japanese requests for trade relations and a consulate, nine years later China and Japan would sign the first bilateral treaty of amity in their history, a completely equal treaty. East Asia-and the diplomatic and trade relations between the region's two major players in the modern era-would never be the same"--
Just a scholar : the memoirs of Zhou Yiliang (1913-2001) by Yiliang Zhou( )

12 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 1,233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of China's premier historians of the twentieth century, Zhou Yiliang (1913-2001) experienced many of the tumultuous events of that century. Born into a wealthy family, his father saw to his pre-college education through a range of tutors which afforded him not only a profound traditional Chinese education but a modern one as well--including virtually native fluency in English and Japanese. He later earned degrees in Beijing before leaving to study and earn a Ph. D. at Harvard during the years of World War II. Given the dearth of Americans who knew Japanese, he was called up in the 1940s to help teach Americans that language. He returned to China after the war, took up academic positions, and found himself the object of severe controversy as the events of post-1949 China unfolded, especially those of the Cultural Revolution. These are his memoirs of his extraordinary life and work--
The formation of the Chinese Communist Party by Yoshihiro Ishikawa( )

15 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 1,188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Official Chinese narratives recounting the rise of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) tend to minimize the movement's international associations. Conducting careful readings and translations of recently released documents in Russian, Japanese, and Chinese, Ishikawa Yoshihiro builds a portrait of the party's multifaceted character, revealing the provocative influences that shaped the movement and the ideologies of its competitors. Making use of public and private documents and research, Ishikawa begins the story in 1919 with Chinese intellectuals who wrote extensively under pen names and, in fact, plagiarized or translated many iconic texts of early Chinese Marxism. Chinese Marxists initially drew intellectual sustenance from their Japanese counterparts, until Japan clamped down on leftist activities. The Chinese then turned to American and British sources. Ishikawa traces these networks through an exhaustive survey of journals, newspapers, and other intellectual and popular publications. He reports on numerous early meetings involving a range of groups, only some of which were later funneled into CCP membership, and he follows the developments at Soviet Russian gatherings attended by a number of Chinese representatives who claimed to speak for a nascent CCP. Concluding his narrative in 1922, one year after the party's official founding, Ishikawa clarifies a traditionally opaque period in Chinese history and sheds new light on the subsequent behavior and attitude of the party."--Publisher
Japanese historiography and the Gold Seal of 57 C.E. : Relic, Text, Object, Fake by Joshua A Fogel( )

13 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,076 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the year 57 C.E., the court of Later Han dynasty presented a gold seal to an emissary from somewhere in what is now Japan. The seal soon vanished from history, only to be unearthed in 1784 in Japan. In the subsequent two-plus centuries, nearly 400 books and articles (mostly by Japanese) have addressed every conceivable issue surrounding this small object of gold. Joshua Fogel places the conferment of the seal in inter-Asian diplomacy of the first century and then traces four waves of historical analysis that the seal has undergone since its discovery, as the standards of historical judgment have changed over these years and the investment in the seal's meaning have changed accordingly
The Nanjing Massacre in history and historiography by Joshua A Fogel( Book )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and Japanese and held by 950 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Rape of Nanjing was one of the worst atrocities committed during World War II. On December 13, 1937, the Japanese army captured the city of Nanjing, then the capital of wartime China. According to the International Military Tribunal, during the ensuing massacre 20,000 Chinese men of military age were killed and approximately 20,000 cases of rape occurred in all, the total number of people killed in and around the city of Nanjing was about 200,000. This carefully researched, intelligent collection of original essays considers the post-World War II treatment in China of the Nanjing Massacre and Japan. The book examines how the issue has developed as a political and diplomatic controversy in the five decades since World War II

10 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 857 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The teleology of the modern nation-state : Japan and China by Joshua A Fogel( )

14 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and held by 628 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This interdisciplinary volume asks deceptively simple questions: When did "Japan" and "China" become Japan and China? When and why do inhabitants begin to define their identity and interests nationally rather than locally? Identifying the role of mitigating factors from disease and travel abroad to the subtleties of political language and aesthetic sensibility, the answers provided in these diverse essays are appropriately complex. By setting aside Western notions of the nation-state, the contributors approach each region on its own terms, while the thematic organization of the book provides a unique lens through which to view the challenges common to understanding both Japan and China. This collection will be important to scholars both inside and beyond the field of East Asian studies."--BOOK JACKET

Manchuria under Japanese dominion by Shin'ichi Yamamuro( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From 1932 until the end of World War II, the Japanese established and maintained by bloody rule a puppet regime in the Chinese region of Manchuria. Yamamuro Shin'ichi's extraordinary book rereads this occupation under new light. The author shows that right-wing Japanese military and civilian groups thought of construction in this sparsely populated region as an effort to build a paradise on earth, with roots deep in Asia traditions. At the same time, Chinese and Korean populations in the region were abused by the Japanese military, and many Japanese were deliberately misinformed about what was being done in their name."--Jacket
Voices from the Chinese century : public intellectual debate from contemporary China by Joshua A Fogel( )

11 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"China's rise has been a source of anxiety and controversy among Western thinkers, and it has had an equally galvanizing influence on Chinese public intellectuals. Voices from China's Century brings together voices from China's three main intellectual communities: Liberals, New Left, and New Confucians. China's strong position in the world, particularly since 2008, has caused ruptures within these groups. The liberals, who, despite internal differences within the group, have represented the "default mode" for the majority of Chinese intellectuals since the 1980s, are now clearly on the defensive, as constitutional democracy and the rule of law have not insulated the West from economic downturns and populism. The same changes have also affected the New Left, who have largely abandoned their posture of support for the laboring masses and joined the New Authoritarians, both supporting the Party-State. The New Confucians have re-branded themselves as "Mainland New Confucians," emphasizing their rupture with New Confucians elsewhere in the Chinese diaspora, and have concentrated on fashioning new discursive themes that claim to provide specifically Confucian content to Xi Jinping's Chinese Dream. In the case of each group, the themes sounded have grown organically out of familiar arguments from the 1990s and 2000s, but they are also distinct in their response to China's--and the world's--new normal. This collection of translations seeks to provide the historical context and analysis to give English readers a concrete sense of what these different Chinese intellectual propositions are responding to"--
