Asian Crossings: Travel Writing on China, Japan and Southeast Asia

Steve Clark and Paul Smethurst


The fourteen chapters in this book examine various topics and contexts of travel writings on China, Japan, and Southeast Asia. From the first Colombian on a trade mission to China, to French women travelers in Asia, and the opening of Japan Fairs in the US during the latter half of the nineteenth century, this book offers a kaleidoscopic glimpse of the various cultures in the eyes of their beholders coupled with understanding of the various politics and relationships that are involved.

Keywords: travel writings, China, Japan, Southeast Asia, cultures, politics, relationships
