Question Description

Unit 3 Essay: China's Impact on Japan and Korea

You have now read a chapter on the early history of East Asia that focused primarily on the history of China but also included the equally important early histories of Japan and Korea. In an essay of approximately 800 words, please explain when and how Japan’s and Korea’s histories were impacted by China, but also what was unique about the historical development of each. To do so, you will want to take as your starting point the period during which East Asia first becomes clearly identifiable as a cultural sphere with developed states in each case – roughly, the sixth to eighth centuries. In writing your essay and thinking about its structure, you might consider the following questions, although you should make your own judgment about what should and should not be included and discussed:

  1. Should the introduction define the term East Asia, the period of time in East Asian history under consideration, and which countries are being included in the discussion?
  2. Should the introduction define clearly the topic that will be discussed and also offer a tentative assessment? (For example, to what extent were Japan and Korea impacted by China and to what extent were their histories entirely unique?)
  3. Should the essay assess the status of China as of the Tang Dynasty, when Korea and Japan were developing into unified states? (For example, by that point in time, what kinds of political systems and intellectual traditions had emerged in China?)
  4. Should a concise overview of how a state emerged in both Japan and Korea and the points at which China had an impact on that process be given?
  5. How did the development of Korea and Japan differ?
  6. How will the essay be concluded? You might reflect on question 5.

founded by Siddhartha Gautama who was well known as the "Buddha". Buddha was the son of a
warrior, believed to have been born in 563 B.C.E. at a place called Lumbini. This religion is
widely practiced by Asian countries. On the hand, Hinduism is a religion which embraces many
traditions of different religions. In modern times, Hinduism did not exist; it started after other
religions had begun. The history of Hinduism has no specific starting point since Hindus are not
concerned with a story rather than the years it happened. They believe time is cyclical. However,
the history of Hinduism is believed to have historical periods which historians are not sure about.
Both the religions originated from the Indian subcontinent. Buddhism had a population of 500600 million while the Hindus had a populatio...
