The Challenge of Change
The Challenge of Change
David Arase, ed.
This volume is a festschrift in honor of Chalmers Johnson by former students and colleagues inspired by his penetrating insight into East Asian affairs, his careful attention to context, and his academic rigor and integrity. The volume may also be read as a collection of essays organized around a fundamental premise in contemporary East Asian political affairs: the East Asian project of modernity that has yet to be completed. Section 1 is on the failure of socialism in China; section 2, the demise of Japan's capitalist model of development; section 3, attempts to reconcile the divided nations of China and Korea; section 4, the U.S. role in the region; and section 5, Johnson's scholarship.
This volume is a festschrift in honor of Chalmers Johnson by former students and colleagues. The essays are organized around the theme of the East Asian project of modernity.
