The peoples of East Asia are living with cultures that have been transformed and newly created within the past 50 to 100 years. Modernization from the West arrived suddenly and with powerful consequences in the countries of East Asia. The old, Confucianist civilizations of China, Japan and Korea were swept aside in favour of new models. How these traditional societies were transformed - particularly their cultures - by the newly fashioned states and the role played by the state in the transformations constitute the main themes of this study by social scientists from China, Japan, North and South Korea.
