East Asian Definitions of War, Torture, and Terrorism
East Asia is a regional designation represented by Mainland China, Taiwan, Japan, and the two Koreas. Its states and territories are bordered by the Himalayas on the west, the Pacific Ocean on the east, Mongolia and Russia to the north, and the China Sea to the south. Although these countries differ among themselves politically, socially, and economically, they share strong cultural influences from Ancient China. This chapter is intended to provide a deeper understanding of East Asia by exploring the history of its inhabitants, their modern realities, and their mental constructions of war, terrorism, and torture.
