I bought this book (Chinese version) today after reading this review and am reading it. It looks like a textbook for middle-school students and should be quite easy to read. I suppose it would be (relatively) unbiased.

The ISBN is 7801906462 and the price is RMB 29.

So far it is interesting. I have only read a few pages as I have spent some time studying the photograph of this treaty (I think anybody who can read traditional Chinese can understand at least half of it) ->

I should check this book out. As wushijiao said, this is a good step forward since the three East Asian nations are cooperating in writing objective history. (at least it seems)

The cover skylee shows is for the first edition. When I was in the bookstore the other day, I noticed that there's a second edition out with a corrected cover, so Japan no longer appears to own Sakhalin. There's also a new timeline of important events in the endpages. I didn't look at the rest of it too carefully to notice whether other changes had been made.

I wrote up this rather rough review after I bought the book.

Oh you mean the islands north of Hokkaido. The big one and two small ones are not on the cover of my book, which says that it is 第3版第1刷. I guess it means that it is the 3rd edition.

Very good review zhwj.

For all the celebration of finding a "common ground", or arriving at a "unified recognition" of historical events, there seems to be an assumption that a presentation of history is valid only when it is written by the victims, or at the very least by the participants in that history.

That sounds like the danger of writing anything by committee.
