East and West Beating Devils and Burning Their Books" considers several topics germane to today's social and intellectual climate. Is religio-cultural conflict innate in religious belief? Is "difference" necessarily an antecedent of conflict? And on a purely expository level, how have governments, intellectuals, and religious devotees represented Asia or the West, and how did they distort those images in order to present diminutive representations of "the Other"? Following works such as Edward Said's "Orientalism" and John Dower's "War Without Mercy," this important volume seeks to continue needed dialogue regarding how China, Japan, and the West have historically viewed and represented each other.
