    I love maps. Is this from a larger image with a legend? Would be fun to see more of the surrounding regions.

    Wonder if things are more stable and peaceful these days since humanity has had 400 more years to figure some things out.

    That's interesting, tc. Taiwan is the island of Formosa (Beautiful) I think it means.
    Koryo is what Korea was called I believe. I bought a bunch of historical souvenirs and you see Koryo on them.

    Pusan city, but now most people say Busan for the second biggest city in SK.

    A much more practical tome would be Andre Gunder Frank's ReOrient -

    Yet, I suspect it might be a bit beyond your kin within this venue.
