Monograph: China, Korea & Japan at War, 1592–1598

Visiting researcher and Korea Foundation Fellow, Dr Marshall Craig, has published a monograph, China, Korea & Japan at War, 1592–1598: Eyewitness Accounts (Routledge 2020), drawing upon his DPhil dissertation and completed during his time with the Aftermath project.  The book sources surviving letters and diaries to recount the personal experiences of five individuals from different backgrounds who lived through the Imjin war and experienced its devastating effects: a Chinese doctor who became a spy; a Japanese samurai on his first foreign expedition; a Korean gentleman turned refugee; a Korean scholar-diplomat; and a Japanese Buddhist monk involved in the atrocities of the invasion.
