Response to a Telling of History

Dear Editor:

I read the latest issue of Western Friend with great interest and edification. I am a Professor Emeritus of Chinese Language, Literature, and History from the City University of New York and could not help noting a number of inaccuracies in Mr. Strickland’s account of East Asian history.

Response to the Response

Dear Editor:

Ha! I expected a Japan expert to check in first. He’s got some of the facts correct, although he would find strong disagreement from Korean historians over ownership of the territory north of the Yalu River during much of history, including most of Manchuria and parts of eastern Siberia.
