Summaries
Back Cover Copy
From the translator's Introduction'The chapters in this volume, which cover a broad range of issues, including Parhae's political history, territory, international relations, trade with its neighbours, and culture, explore all of this and more, including Russian and Japanese claims about Parhae. But the main thrust here is the critical examination of Chinese assertions about Parhae and the demonstration of political, ethnic, and cultural links between Koguryo and Parhae. The research done on all sides in recent decades has brought to light considerable new evidence, particularly archaeological data. Nonetheless, that data, too, is still fragmentary and is often used to make nationalistic interpretations.The authors in this volume all recognize the problematic nature of nationalist narratives as applied to the history of Parhae…Even so, it seems to me that, taken as a whole, the interpretations advanced by these authors are more sustainable than many of those advanced by Chinese scholars. It is my hope that this volume will stimulate greater interest in the history of Parhae and beyond to a more general history of the Manchurian region in early times.'John B. Duncan (UCLA)
