"The editors would likely join this reviewer in hoping that this volume, and its two predecessors, will stimulate beginners to delve further into the literature of Asia.
Summing Up: Recommended."
C. Schirokauer, Columbia University, CHOICE"By specifically focusing on content
derived from China, Japan, and Korea,
the authors provide readers with a curated
selection of translated primary source excerpt
content arranged in chronological sequence,
dating from antiquity to the contemporary era.
As such, Voices of East Asia becomes a useful reference for instructors of
and students enrolled in advanced high school- or survey-level collegiate
courses in East Asian history, religious studies, or literature."CHRISTA ADAMS, Lecturer in History, Cuyahoga Community College, Cleveland,
