Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book The Challenge of Linear Time: Nationhood and the Politics of History in East Asia contains the table of contents and a list of contributors. During the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, as China and Japan entered the global capitalist system of nation-states, the Chinese and Japanese regimes implemented a number of reforms, which resulted in transformations that affected everyday experience. International trade and diplomatic relations required that Japanese and Chinese rethink their notions of time and space and new conceptions of time found expression in Japanese and Chinese society.

Keywords: Chinese society; international trade; Japanese society
