This chapter covers the reactions to imperialism in Asia from the side of the people in that continent instead of covering it solely from the side of the West. It covers some of the issues that arise in the countries themselves as they are attempting to keep their own countries from the Europeans. A great deal of time is spent in explaining the issues in China and Korea in this time period as well as the far different reactions in Japan during this time. Understanding these concepts is pivotal in understanding the Pacific Theater in WWII so we as a class spend a good amount of time setting this up as well as we can.
This area is in the process of being created. In the meantime, please see the class notes for any information you may need for this chapter. An example of a completed page can be found in chapter 11.
