Joint Sino-Korean-Japanese History book

Saturday, June 11, 2005 Posted: 09:31 PM JST

ESWN yesterday published a very interesting examination of a joint Sino-Korean-Japanese history book that tries to provide an unbiased account of modern east Asian history.

ESWN compares the book with the textbook produced by the nationalist Japanese Society for Textbook Reform. This text book was the source of the anti-Japan riots in China earlier this year. It is important to note that according to Japanese news sources this book is used only at a handful of Japanese schools and is not representative of history books in Japan.

The now legendary Sir Ernest Mason Satow (1843-1929) was a member of the British legation in Tokyo for twenty-one years. This classic book is based on the author's detailed diary, personal encounters, and keen memory. In it, Satow records the history of the critical years of social and political upheaval that accompanied Japan's first encounters with the West around the time of the Meiji Restoration. Fascinating.
