East Asia Now explores connections between East Asia and the United States through interviews, discussions, and lectures. It is an outreach initiative of the Center for East Asian Studies at the University of Wisconsin—Madison.
 
This podcast series represents the work of 28 students from Centre College who took "HIS 435: Spirits, Gods and Ghosts of East Asia" together in January 2017. They received no prompt or recommended categories from their instructor, and built these episodes from scratch themselves with virtually no prior audio engineering experience. These episodes represent a diverse collection of student research into broader categories of East Asian folklore and ghost tales.
 
本人曾居住中東與中亞地區服務多年,對中東與中亞相關事務非常熟悉。針對這些一般亞洲人比較少關注的,但又是國際政治的聚焦重點地區,特別開設此一頻道,以講解相關國家背景、歷史、目前國情狀況與國際新聞上牽涉這些地區的新聞說明解釋。 所有各集說法僅代表本人意見,歡迎大家針對有興趣的主題收聽。 歐亞大陸遊牧民族的歷史研究,純粹個人喜好,中國正統朝代的歷史我沒興趣,但這些隱藏在歷史帷幕後的遊牧民族縱橫歐亞大陸東西,少數民族建國圖生存,歷史上沒有提到的東西方交流才是我最有興趣的重點。 歡迎介紹給更多想增加知識的朋友一起來聽我講故事。如果有專門想聽的主題,或我哪邊講錯想訂正的,歡迎來信 yupingsu@hotmail.com 也可以在臉書上搜尋【外交官講中東與中亞】的粉絲頁與我交流喔。 Hi, I am a career diplomat used to served in Middle East and Central Asia region for many years.

俄羅斯的斯拉夫人兄弟民族 圖片為狄托。 斯拉夫民族有東、西、南三支,東支是俄羅斯、烏克蘭、白俄羅斯,西支就是捷克、斯洛伐克、波蘭等,南支是塞爾維亞、保加利亞、克羅埃西亞人、斯洛維尼亞、馬其頓與黑山國等。 我們瞭解過東斯拉夫民族的俄羅斯、烏克蘭、白俄羅斯,也應該對西斯拉夫族與南斯拉夫族稍作介紹。 這些斯拉夫人是何時分家的呢?其實早在西元5世紀,匈人帝國縱橫東歐與西歐平原,到6世紀突厥西征大軍平推到烏克蘭時,斯拉夫人開始初步出現民族意識。 當時原佔據東歐俄羅斯、波蘭、烏克蘭、白俄羅斯、高加索以北這塊區域的哥德人、日耳曼人、斯拉夫人等令羅馬帝國頭痛不已的蠻族,被更加野蠻兇惡的匈奴人與突厥人由東歐往西歐推擠過去。 這些原本羅馬人眼中的蠻族,打不過來自東方更野蠻的游牧民族,當時的部族也沒有領土意識,打…
 
Hakkenden is a classic work of Japanese literature: the story of the eight warriors, born from Princess Fuse and the dog Yatsufusa, has been adapted to manga, movies and anime. And its tropes continue to pop up in Japanese popular culture today. But there’s so much story in Hakkenden that Eight Dogs, or "Hakkenden": Part One―An Ill-Considered Jest …

烏克蘭的全歷史 最早崛起的羅斯人政權,是維京血統瓦良格人做為上層統治階級統治中下階層羅斯民眾的留里克王朝,留里克第二任大公奧列格南下打下基輔,成為基輔羅斯的創建者,也就是今天我們一般說「基輔羅斯」是「俄羅斯、白俄羅斯、烏克蘭」三國共同始祖的依據。當時的基輔羅斯一度強盛,不但攻滅了統治歐俄地區三百年的突厥可薩汗國,還組織羅斯聯軍遠征拜占庭,逼迫拜占庭簽署城下之盟,重金贖買和平並簽署雙邊貿易協議。只不過接替可薩汗國的另一支突厥佩切涅格汗國不久又擊敗基輔羅斯,殺了奧列格大公,將羅斯人當家做主的心願又壓了回去。基輔羅斯只能繼續在突厥人的統治下作為一個羅斯諸公國的一員存在。 今日俄羅斯的真正直系始祖,其實要算是蒙古人統治時期的莫斯科公國。莫斯科在蒙古人西征入侵基輔羅斯的時代,只是羅斯諸公國中的一個小鎮…
 
倖免蒙古征服的白俄羅斯 此外值得一提的是今天屬於「白俄羅斯」的這塊土地,為什麼要以白色的俄羅斯著稱? 其實「白俄羅斯」這塊土地原先是屬於基輔羅斯公國的一部份,因此與俄羅斯、烏克蘭等地的斯拉夫人是一樣的起源。只是在十三世紀蒙古征服大軍到來之時,白俄羅斯土地上的羅斯諸公國為對抗蒙古大軍,改與波蘭立陶宛聯邦結合,誓死抵抗野蠻的蒙古騎兵入侵。雖然一度也遭到蒙古大軍入侵劫掠,但立陶宛波蘭聯軍的來到解放了白俄羅斯上的斯拉夫人。因此白俄羅斯的斯拉夫人並沒有受到蒙古人的統治,因此血統上並未融入蒙古與突厥等來自東方蒙古人種的黃種人血脈,因此白俄羅斯的斯拉夫人無論在膚色、髮色、眼球色等都是純種高加索人種,不像今日的俄羅斯人已經混雜太多突厥、蒙古等東方血脈。 不過在莫斯科公國崛起,進而升格為俄羅斯沙皇國之後,白俄…

Present-day relations between ‘the West’ and each of China, Russia and North Korea are often fractious to say the least, yet today’s global atmosphere of menace or crisis just as often has to do with history as it does with contemporary disagreements. All states of course seek ‘usable pasts’ which may or may not be in conflict with one another, but…

2022.05.02 從可薩汗國、基輔羅斯公國、莫斯科公國到俄羅斯沙皇國的傳承故事與擴張歷史 圖為沙俄帝國軍進軍中亞各突厥系汗國 西突厥征服俄羅斯烏克蘭之地 匈奴人的時代結束了,一樣是塞種人後裔的突厥人繼起,成為歐亞大陸的新主人。西元552年,新崛起的突厥阿史那部落土門可汗,與弟弟室點密葉護一起擊敗盤據蒙古高原、由鮮卑人建立的強大柔然帝國,建立突厥汗國。西元556年,當時突厥可汗木桿可汗支持叔父,也就是突厥汗國的共同創辦人室點密葉護(Istami Yabgu,葉護Yabgu是突厥官名,副王之意,汗國之下有葉護國)率領突厥本部以及附屬之鐵勒諸部(講突厥語的東方游牧部族聯盟)共十萬部隊開始西征,主要目的是追殺柔然帝國的殘餘份子——阿瓦爾人。 突厥可薩汗國統治俄羅斯之地三百年 西突厥汗國於西元65…
 
圖為匈奴王阿提拉畫像 2021年7月17日,筆者在臉書上看到追蹤中的俄羅斯總統普丁(Vladimir Putin),在他個人臉書上貼文表示:「對於俄羅斯而言,烏克蘭不是外國,烏克蘭是俄羅斯歷史的一部份,烏克蘭人也是俄羅斯人的一部份,而這也是發生在烏克蘭的一切會這麼樣讓俄羅斯人心痛的緣故。」普丁又說:「烏克蘭被有意地扭曲成反俄羅斯,強迫俄裔的烏克蘭人放棄他們對歷史的認同與團結。我們不要管彼此路線歧異,應注意的是住在烏克蘭及俄羅斯境內千百萬人民的命運糾葛,幾世紀以來精神上的糾葛。」 普丁還說:「對於所有瞭解俄羅斯歷史的人來說,幾個世紀以來我們就是一個單一民族國家,所以人為創造烏克蘭成為一個反俄前哨站是抵觸所有人的利益的。大多數烏克蘭人都明白這些事實,但他們面對前所未有的壓力,被迫扭曲民族認同、放…
 
圖:八國聯軍進攻紫禁城情景。 俄羅斯的衰弱是中國崛起最好的一次機會與考驗 2022.03.03所寫 俄羅斯入侵烏克蘭的戰鬥已經超過1個禮拜,這場戰爭在東、西方世界卻有截然不同的看法。對於美國、歐洲等歐盟及北約國家,以及同樣為民主自由政治體制為主的國家而言,對俄羅斯以蠻橫無理的態勢出兵進攻另一個主權國家烏克蘭的行為都無法接受。這種明目張膽破壞國際規範與國際法的事情,無疑是蔑視所有既存之國際秩序,宣告叢林法則的回歸。 但在亞洲的看法稍有不同,相同秉持西方式民主的日本、韓國、台灣、東協國家、澳洲、紐西蘭等當然是支持烏克蘭的奮起抵抗,譴責進攻烏克蘭的俄羅斯。甚至連地緣關係遙遠的中南美洲、加勒比海國家,除了少數俄羅斯的鐵桿死忠盟友之外,絕大多數國家都是譴責俄羅斯進攻烏克蘭的,因為一旦沒有國際秩序,對於…

今天是2022年4月25號晚上8點鐘美東時間,台灣已經是26日的早上8點。這個世界其實真的不平靜,除了俄烏戰爭進入第三個月之外,光是在中東,伊朗不配合回歸2015年核武計畫而不斷要求美國要解除對伊朗制裁、解凍伊朗海外資金、將伊朗革命衛隊從支持恐怖組織名單中刪除等。我們看到美歐對俄羅斯進行嚴酷的制裁,但伊朗就算被制裁了十幾、二十年,還是活得好好的,而且還越來越強大,所以制裁俄國是否真能有效?還是先傷害了無辜百姓? 以巴之間的仇殺未見停止,阿拉伯巴勒斯坦人與猶太以色列人之間的殺戮難以停歇,即使以色列擁有中東最強的武力,也無法根除這些衝突。做為觀光客倒是不會成為攻擊的目標,反而希望得到你的友誼與同情,希望你為他們在國際上發聲支持。 以色列原先在美俄之間保持等距,但目前似乎關係趨向破裂。 俄羅斯戰略…
 
China has the reputation for being a strong security state.

Lee argues that foreign sub…
