Though when people discuss World War I, they usually center on the fighting in Europe, it truly was a global war. This book examines the role of East Asia in the fighting. It looks at how East Asian commentators saw and interpreted the war, both in Europe and elsewhere, and what lessons they drew from the experience for their own societies. What influence did World War I have on East Asian visions of the world order? Presenting scholarship by a number of East Asian authors in English for the first time, the book greatly expands our understanding of World War I and its effects.
