Seamlessly blending current events, politics, and cultural elements, the authors provide a riveting account of a nation often misunderstood by the West.

Die gesamte Geschichte Ostasiens – Chinas, Koreas und Japans – von der Frühzeit bis 1800 in einem Band Der renommierte China-Kenner und Sinologe Dieter Kuhn entfaltet das ganze Panorama der chinesischen, koreanischen und japanischen Geschichte und Kultur über rund 3000 Jahre. Er erzählt von Schlachten, Dynastien und Kaisern, von den Samurais und der Lehre des Konfuzius, von Buddhismus und Ahnenkult. Er beschreibt die prächtigen Hauptstädte, die nach konfuzianischen Prinzipien angelegt waren, und schildert die zahlreichen wissenschaftlichen Errungenschaften, die bis nach Europa gelangten. Dabei wird deutlich, wie sehr die chinesische Kultur den gesamten ostasiatischen Raum geprägt hat. Dennoch bewahrten Korea und Japan eine jeweils eigene Identität, wie Dieter Kuhn eindrucksvoll vor Augen führt. Der Band ist mit 16 Karten und 24 Abbildungen hervorragend illustriert. Die ›Neue Fischer Weltgeschichte‹ ist die erste umfassende Universalgeschichte des 21. Jahrhunderts. Ein Standardwerk auf Jahre hin für Schule, Studium und Weiterbildung.

Japan began to fascinate the West after the account of Marco Polo’s sojourn in China. This set off an interest in the oriental world. The Portuguese, being the first, arrived in Japan in 1543 which was followed by others. The experience Japan had with Europeans put upon itself isolation for about 200 years. After the forceful opening by Mathew Perry in 1853, many Westerners again began to arrive in Japan. Later during the 1980s, there was an influx of migrant workers which become a hot topic of debate. The book throws much light onto the historical background as well as the events that lead up to the present state of affairs in relation to issues of discrimination, crimes and problems related to foreigners.

Born of Japan's cultural encounter with Western entertainment media, manga (comic books or graphic novels) and anime (animated films) are two of the most universally recognized forms of contemporary mass culture. Because they tell stories through visual imagery, they vault over language barriers. Well suited to electronic transmission and distributed by Japan's globalized culture industry, they have become a powerful force in both the mediascape and the marketplace.This volume brings together an international group of scholars from many specialties to probe the richness and subtleties of these deceptively simple cultural forms. The contributors explore the historical, cultural, sociological, and religious dimensions of manga and anime, and examine specific sub-genres, artists, and stylistics. The book also addresses such topics as spirituality, the use of visual culture by Japanese new religious movements, Japanese Goth, nostalgia and Japanese pop, "cute" (kawali) subculture and comics for girls, and more. With illustrations throughout, it is a rich source for all scholars and fans of manga and anime as well as students of contemporary mass culture or Japanese culture and civilization.
