Manchuria is a historical region, which roughly corresponds to Northeast China. The Manchu people, who established the last dynasty of Imperial China (the Qing, 1644-1911) originated there, and it has been the stage of turbulent events during the twentieth century: the Russo-Japanese war, Japanese occupation and establishment of the puppet state of Manchukuo, Soviet invasion, and Chinese civil war. This innovative and accessible historical survey both introduces Manchuria to students and general readers and contributes to the emerging regional perspective in the study of China.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Manchuria has been attracting the attention of observers to the west since the Russian Empire began taking an interest in the seventeenth century. Cultures, economies, resource flows, and interests have converged and encountered each other there. It is, therefore, no surprise that contemporary scholars have recently begun taking a more serious look at Manchuria and its capacity to induce change and be changed by indigenous and external influences. This book presents an encompassing, but engaging, survey of how individuals and collective actors - principally China, Japan, and Russia - have shaped Manchuria's history over the last four centuries as well as its present. It is a rich guide for students and experts looking to discover and reassess the diverse scholarly claims about how Manchuria has become the fascinating region and research object that it currently is. * Dr Susanne Hohler, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitat Munchen, Germany *
