China S Hegemony

Book by Ji-Young Lee, China S Hegemony Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download China S Hegemony books, Many have viewed the tribute system as China's tool for projecting its power and influence in East Asia, treating other actors as passive recipients of Chinese domination. China's Hegemony sheds new light on this system and shows that the international order of Asia's past was not as Sinocentric as conventional wisdom suggests. Instead, throughout the early modern period, Chinese hegemony was accepted, defied, and challenged by its East Asian neighbors at different times, depending on these leaders' strategies for legitimacy among their populations. This book demonstrates that Chinese hegemony and hierarchy were not just an outcome of China's military power or Confucian culture but were constructed while interacting with other, less powerful actors' domestic political needs, especially in conjunction with internal power struggles. Focusing on China-Korea-Japan dynamics of East Asian international politics during the Ming and High Qing periods, Ji-Young Lee draws on extensive research of East Asian language sources, including records written by Chinese and Korean tributary envoys. She offers fascinating and rich details of war and peace in Asian international relations, addressing questions such as: why Japan invaded Korea and fought a major war against the Sino-Korean coalition in the late sixteenth century; why Korea attempted to strike at the Ming empire militarily in the late fourteenth century; and how Japan created a miniature tributary order posing as the center of Asia in lieu of the Qing empire in the seventeenth century. By exploring these questions, Lee's in-depth study speaks directly to general international relations literature and concludes that hegemony in Asia was a domestic, as well as an international phenomenon with profound implications for the contemporary era.

The Samurai And The Sacred

Book by Stephen Turnbull, The Samurai And The Sacred Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Samurai And The Sacred books, The fierce loyalty and self-sacrificing attitude of the Samurai have made them both a legend and a cult. Yet although their military prowess and skills in the martial arts have been studied exhaustively, an understanding of their belief system still eludes many. This original and exciting work examines the spiritual world of the samurai, from their attachment to Japan's mainstream religions of Shinto and Buddhism, to their involvement in Confucianism, Christianity and folk religion. Samurai expert Stephen Turnbull examines important topics such as Zen and the martial arts, modern militarism, the cult of the sword, revenge and suicide, hara kiri and the kamikaze pilots the suicide bombers of their day. He also looks at the fascinating issue of Japanese religious terrorism, as well as the growing cult status of the Samurai both in Japan and in the West.

From White To Yellow

Book by Rotem Kowner, From White To Yellow Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download From White To Yellow books, When Europeans first landed in Japan they encountered people they perceived as white-skinned and highly civilized, but these impressions did not endure. Gradually the Europeans' positive impressions faded away and Japanese were seen as yellow-skinned and relatively inferior. Accounting for this dramatic transformation, From White to Yellow is a groundbreaking study of the evolution of European interpretations of the Japanese and the emergence of discourses about race in early modern Europe. Transcending the conventional focus on Africans and Jews within the rise of modern racism, Rotem Kowner demonstrates that the invention of race did not emerge in a vacuum in eighteenth-century Europe, but rather was a direct product of earlier discourses of the "Other." This compelling study indicates that the racial discourse on the Japanese, alongside the Chinese, played a major role in the rise of the modern concept of race. While challenging Europe's self-possession and sense of centrality, the discourse delayed the eventual consolidation of a hierarchical worldview in which Europeans stood immutably at the apex. Drawing from a vast array of primary sources, From White to Yellow traces the racial roots of the modern clash between Japan and the West.

The Chronicle Of Lord Nobunaga

Book by Gyūichi Ōta, The Chronicle Of Lord Nobunaga Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Chronicle Of Lord Nobunaga books, Shinch?-K? ki<, the work translated here into English under the title “The Chronicle of Lord Nobunaga,” is the most important source on the career of one of the best known figures in all of Japanese history—Oda Nobunaga (1534-1582), the first of the “Three Heroes” who unified Japan after a century of fragmentation and internecine bloodshed. The other two of the triad, Toyotomi Hideyoshi (1537-1598) and Tokugawa Ieyasu (1543-1616), also make frequent appearances in this chronicle, playing prominent although clearly subordinate roles. So the chronicle also is an important source on their early careers, as it is on a constellation of other actors in Japan’s sixteenth-century drama. The chronicle’s author, ?ta Gy?ichi, was Nobunaga’s former retainer and an eyewitness of some of the events he describes. He completed his work about the year 1610.

Oda Nobunaga Der Erste Schritt Zur Reichseinigung Japans

Book by , Oda Nobunaga Der Erste Schritt Zur Reichseinigung Japans Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Oda Nobunaga Der Erste Schritt Zur Reichseinigung Japans books, Essay aus dem Jahr 2011 im Fachbereich Orientalistik / Sinologie - Japanologie, Note: 1,3, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In meiner Semesterarbeit möchte ich mich mit dem Thema Oda Nobunaga 織田 信長(1534-1582) auseinandersetzen. Hauptsächlich befasse ich mich mit der Thematik, wie Oda Nobunaga im Laufe der Zeit aufgestiegen ist, sich entwickelt hat und letztendlich Japan veränderte. Des Weiteren wird noch zusätzlich thematisiert werden, warum Akechi Mitsuhide 明智 光秀 (1528-1582) seinen Herrn Oda Nobunaga hinterging und wie er dies vollbrachte. Außerdem gehe ich auf Oda Nobunagas wichtigste Schlachten ein, werde diese kurz erläutern, sowie entscheidende Aspekte unterstreichen. Zusätzlich versuche ich seinen Stil der Kriegsführung genauer darzustellen. Ich beziehe mich hauptsächlich auf Quellen, welche der englischen und vereinzelt auch aus der deutschen Sprache zu Grunde liegen. Dazu muss ich erwähnen, dass es mehrere interessante Quellen zu der Thematik über den Reichseiniger gibt, aber ich mich hauptsächlich auf die Biographie des Oda Nobunagas berufen werde. Sie wurde von Jeroen Pieter Lamers verfasst und ist am verständlichsten, sehr detailliert und auf dem aktuellsten historischen Stand, im Vergleich zu mehreren anderen Quellen. Speziell wenn es um das Verhältnis zwischen Akechi Mitsuhide und Oda Nobunaga geht, widersprechen sich aber leider manche Quellen außerordentlich.
