China's Hegemony

Chapter 5 examines how Japan and Korea responded to the Ming-Qing transition with the rise of Manchu (later the Qing empire) power. The chapter shows the clear links between the Qing empire’s “barbarian” identity and its strategic consequences for the making of hegemony. Japan and Korea’s responses to the Qing empire cannot be understood without considering their political leaders’ use of the Qing empire’s perceived cultural inferiority to their advantage, in ways that enhanced their domestic authority against their own rivals.

Keywords:   The Ming-Qing power transition, Tokugawa Japan, Manchu invasions of Korea, the “barbarian” Manchus, Neo-Confucianism
