The present collection of essays has originally been prepared for an international conference entitled “Maritime Space in Traditional Chinese Sources” which has been convened by the editors at Munich University in February 2005. The contributions included here introduce various aspects related to East Asian seas - from the Japanese Sea to the South China Sea, with the Yellow and East China Seas constituting the core regions of the entire area - and some of its “adjacent” areas. This volume is consequently primarily concerned with the perception of maritime space in traditional Chinese sources, the division of this space into oceans and seas, the existence, usage and management of trade routes, and, above all, of China’s coastal waters, or maritime periphery. Following an introductory essay by Angela Schottenhammer, the contributions are divided into three sections:
(1) Maritime Space: Trade and Defence: the articles by Chang Pin-tsun, Jane Kate Leonard and Jung Byung-chul;
(2) Maritime Space: Coasts, Routes, Oceans: articles by Chen Bo/Liu Yingsheng, Sally K. Church, Christine Moll-Murata, Li Tana and Mathieu Torck;
(3) Maritime Space and Maps: papers of Li Xiaocong,
