Summary Societies in East and Southeast Asia grew up in the shadows of the larger nations of China and India. China especially cast a long shadow over the history of its neighbors, whose rulers were conceived of as “little brothers” of the great Chinese emperor, regardless of dynasty. Nevertheless, reflection on the history of these lands reveals a considerable degree of autonomous cultural identity, perhaps none so fierce as that of Japan.
