John Green: Asian Response to Imperialism

Here's a new John Green video about the Asian responses to imperialism. Green bases much of the clip on Pankaj Mishra 's book, From Ruins to Empire: the the revolt Against the West and the Remaking of Asia.

Mishra examines imperialism through the eyes of a Chinese intellectual and a Muslim journalist at the turn of the 20th century and shows how "some of the most intelligent and sensitive people in the East responded to the encroachment of the West."

You can see my post about the book here.
