This book offers an excellent overview of East Asian history. It is not a through account of every event that happened in the time period but it provides a great framework for further study. After going through this book the reader can identify parts of Asian history, from the BC era in China to the reconstruction of Asia after World War II, for further in-depth study. It is easy to read although there is a large amount of information packed into a very small amount of pages so while easy it is not a light read by any means. Overall it is a great textbook on East Asian history and wonderful for those who are just getting started in that area.

Received this book in very poor quality. Supposedly purchased a new book, but upon arrival it was very clearly used. Stickers on both inside covers from previous owner, including an address from a previous owner. EVery edge is a bit bent and dirty, and the tops and bottoms of the hardcover are bent in quite a bit. False advertising, very unsatisfied.
