An historic moment

The inaugural Asian History carnival is now up at Frog in a Well. That old debate about whether Marco really went anywhere, except in his imagination, has a prominent place, while I was particularly taken by a post on the extensive history of slavery in Korea. I hadn't previously seen this discussed, although the fact that a lot of the little I know about Korean history comes from visiting the North probably has something to do with that. (From that perspective, all history is glorious, and was an inevitable progression to the current moment of perfection.)
