This course introduces the main threads of East Asian civilization in historical context. The first half narrates the basic history of Korea, Japan, and China from about 1200 BC to about 1200 AD, focusing on the creation of governments, unified polities, and ideologies, and the relations of society and the state. After the midterm exam, we move topically to examine the economy and major traditions in religion and family life: a good chance to review the first half, too. We read a textbook, secondary sources (work by historians), and primary sources translated into English. Short weekly response papers on the primary sources are due in each week’s discussion section. WebCT provides reading and study guides. Review for successful learning is built in. Required Books: At the UCSD bookstore, but check on-line for better prices! 1.
