This collection of essays inaugurates a new series by Brill (Modern East Asia in a Global Perspective) by juxtaposing Western and East Asian views of race and actual racism. After an editorial introduction, the twenty chapter-length essays are organized into two sections along these lines. Chapters on western race theories, racial images, and racism examine early modern race theories, the origins of "the mongoloid race," racial fear since 1800, representations of East Asians in Russian Modernism, national identity in post-revolutionary Russia, and more. The second section on East Asian race theories, racial policies, and racism explores racial discourse and utopian visions in 19th century China, South Korean racism, colonial experience in Korea, Japanese experiences of race abroad between 1880 and 1950, race and Japanese colonialism, blood ideology, and Obamamania in Japan. The contributors are American and European professors of history, English, area-studies, and politics. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
