  • Historical Atlas of Northeast Asia, 1590-2010
    Historical Atlas of Northeast Asia, 1590-2010 (English, Hardback) Narangoa Li, Robert Cribb

    Four hundred years ago, indigenous peoples occupied the vast region that today encompasses Korea, Manchuria, the Mongolian Plateau, and Eastern Siberia. Over time, these populations struggled to maintain autonomy as Russia, China, and Japan sought hegemony over the region. This atlas tracks the political configuration of Northeast Asia in ten-year segments from 1590 to 1890, in five-year segments from 1890 to 1960, and in ten-year segments from 1960 to 2010. The text follows the rise and fall of the Qing dynasty in China, founded by the semi-nomadic Manchus; the Russian colonization of Siberia; the growth of Japanese influence; the movements of peoples, armies, and borders; and political, social, and economic developments. Compiled from detailed research using American, Chinese, Dutch, English, French, German, Japanese, Mongolian, and Russian sources, the book also includes fifty-five specially drawn maps, as well as twenty historical maps contrasting local and outsider perspectives. Four introductory maps survey the region's geography, vegetation, peoples and languages, and political landscape in 1590.
