World History Teaching in Asia is the first broad survey of the content and approaches used to teach world history in secondary schools and colleges in Asia. The collection has been crafted by scholars and educators whose goal was to shed light on the importance of history education and to foster understanding of and between Asian countries. These essays show how the teaching of world history in Asian countries has developed since World War II, with many interesting parallels, including the issue of Eurocentrism, but also distinctive national trends, and considerable changes over time. At a time when many Asian countries are making great strides in education, this study of history education in Asia will be of real interest to educators, history scholars, and policy-makers worldwide.
