Americans and Asians have become almost as interdependent politically and economically as Americans and Europeans. But Americans and Asians do not have a common cultural heritage as a basis for mutual understanding. This collection of seventeen essays by eminent scholars lays the foundation for much-needed historical work in the field of American-East Asian relations. It is a historiographical survey of American literature on the subject written between the 1780s and the 1960s and includes contributions by John King Fairbank, Kwang-Ching Liu, Robert Schwantes, Marilyn Blatt Young, Akira Iriye, Waldo Heinrichs, Jr., Louis Morton, Morton Halperin, and James Thomson.
