Journal of Asian Studies, May 2018: War and Environment in Korean History

The environmental history of Korea has generally been neglected until recently.  Warfare has repeatedly plagued the peninsula’s history, and we have been waiting for studies of environmental consequences of Korea’s wars to appear.  We welcome the May 2018 issue of the Journal of Asian Studies, which has an impressive set of essays covering more than four centuries of its history.  This is a major addition to the growing literature on war and environment in Asia.
