Gender in Modern East Asia explores the history of women and gender in China, Korea, and Japan from the seventeenth century to the present. This unique volume treats the three countries separately within each time period while also placing them in global and regional contexts. Its transnational and integrated approach connects the cultural, economic, and social developments in East Asia to what is happening across the wider world. The text focuses specifically on the dynamic histories of sexuality; gender ideology, discourse, and legal construction; marriage and the family; and the gendering of work, society, culture, and power. Important themes and topics woven through the text include Confucianism, writing and language, the role of the state in gender construction, nationalism, sexuality and prostitution, New Women and Modern Girls, feminisms, "comfort" women, and imperialism. Accessibly written and comprehensive, Gender in Modern East Asia is a much-needed contribution to the study of the region.

"A groundbreaking work that brings together the gender history of China, Japan and Korea. Recommended textbook for gender historians and Modern East Asian specialists." --Angelina Chin, Pomona College "This is the first book in the field that provides a coherent, comprehensive and balanced History of gender relations in East Asia. Instead of producing yet another collection of articles, the authors, prominent gender historians of China, Japan and Korea respectively, were able to seamlessly combine their knowledge and unify their perspective in this book. This book not only integrates the histories of gender in China, Japan and Korea, highlighting important connections as well as differences, but it also explicitly sees them as part of global history of gender, as well as of global history." --Elena Valussi, Loyola University Chicago "This is the only book of its kind to provide a thorough and up to date analysis of gender in east asia, that is grounded in national and transnational contexts. It is suitable for undergraduates and graduate students, and covers the gendering of the private realms of marriage and family, as well as the discourses and power shifts related to work, law, and society." --Cristina Zaccarini, Adelphi University
