Some miles off the coast of China lays Japan. Korea is situated northeast of China, with a shared border. And Vietnam is located far to the south. From early-on, the people of China, Japan, Korea, and Vietnam shared a similar globalization, as Chinese merchants plied the waters to the other three groups, carrying their ideas and institutions with them.
Beyond commercial contact, they had similar experiences. As with China, for example, traditional society, economy, polity, and culture fused into the leadership of Japan. Like China, Korea struggled to become unified, and then was invaded and occupied by the Mongols who had occupied the Chinese mainland. Similar to China, Vietnam expanded to create a vast empire, known as the Kingdom of Dai Viet. Seemingly, Chinese influences were the glue that held the four groups together, being transferred to Japan, Korea, and Vietnam in different ways at different times.
Now, please compare these three societies, economies, polities, and cultures. What were some significant similarities between them? Then, what differences do you perceive? The conclusion of chapter 11 observed, “like many other great civilizations, the Chinese were traditionally convinced of the superiority of their culture?” Do you believe the Japanese, Koreans, and Vietnamese shared this sense of superiority, why or why not?
