Acerca de


This book shows that the Western treatment of World War II, the Second Sino-Japanese War and the Chinese Civil War as separate and distinct misrepresents their overlapping connections and causes. S. C. M. Paine emphasizes the fears and ambitions of Japan, China and Russia, and the pivotal decisions that set them on a collision course in the 1920s and 1930s.


'Paine's study offers new perspectives on imperialist wars and interventions in twentieth-century Asia. Based on multi-archival research, it addresses a range of issues in the fraught relations of Japan, China, Russia, and the United States. Students of comparative history will find Paine's analytical framing particularly interesting.' Herbert P. Bix, Binghamton University

'The author has written a highly original and provocative work, organized around the thesis that 'nested' civil, regional, and international wars defined East Asian politics and international relations over the first half of the twentieth century. By artful use of the latest Russian, Japanese, Chinese, and U.S. primary and secondary sources, Professor Paine succeeds in showing how war changed the face of East Asia.' Stephen R. MacKinnon, Arizona State University

'The first integrated study of Asia's forty years of war. A major intellectual contribution.' Arthur Waldron, Lauder Professor of International Relations, University of Pennsylvania

'... a fascinating account of how modern East Asia was shaped by war. By disaggregating the three main wars in the first half of the twentieth century, the author succeeds in showing how their causes and conditions were linked but still separate.' O. A. Westad, author of Restless Empire: China and the World since 1750

'This excellent and ambitious book deals with state-building and warfare in twentieth-century Asia. It underlines the critical role of war in modern Asian history and shows how often war trumped diplomacy. It shows too the terrible toll that warfare has exacted on China, Japan, and Russia. Paine gives an original, perceptive, and long-overdue reinterpretation of twentieth-century Asia.' Diana Lary, author of The Chinese People at War

'... Paine's book provides us with an important tool through which we can learn the lessons of the past. This in turn will hopefully allow us to plot a safer course in order to avoid any future wars for Asia.' Tosh Minohara, Pacific Affairs

'An excellent one-volume survey of Chinese military history in the first half of the twentieth century, The Wars for Asia, 1911–1949 will be of value to anyone interested in World War II and particularly the causes of the Pacific War.' A. A. Nofi, Editor, The NYMAS Review
