This book takes an unprecedented comparative approach in examining East Asia. Part in-depth reference, part handy guidebook this manual serves both travelers and students of Mainland China, Japan, and South Korea. Blending detailed maps with history and contemporary cultural similarities and differences, this book provides the most up-to-date information on the pulse of East Asia.

Its ok. Redundant at times but great source for quick facts and project topics.

This book is useless. If you want to see where she copied her text from you just need
to type in a line and it will take you to the web page where she cut and pasted her text from. There is useless
stuff like charts that show lengths of rice grains between CJK and chopstick length, material of spoons, stupid stuff. If this was a grade 10 project I would give it an "F". And this is supposedly a Ph.D. You would be a fool to carry this for a guide book. Lonely Planet if 100 times more useful. This is Ju Browns 3rd stinker that I have reviewed.
