This course focuses on the modern story of how America as a Pacific nation helped to shape East Asia. Inspired by America?s role in nineteenth-century Asia as both modernizer and colonizer, we trace the dramatic transformation East Asia underwent to become what we recognize today as modern nation-states. During the twentieth century, the US became involved with each of these countries in both hot and cold wars, resulting in shifting alliances and divided nations. We conclude with the current state of affairs in East Asia and the evolving relationships between these countries and with the US.

Proctored tests are required for this course. Additional fees may apply.
