Asian History

Questia, your online research library and paper writing resource, contains thousands of scholarly articles and books about Asian History.

Asia is the largest continent and home to over half of the world’s population. Some of the earliest civilizations in recorded history began in Asia. The history and culture of Asian countries are vast and varied, with different languages, customs, governments, and religions represented in the huge continent. However, the division of Asian into six regions—Southwest Asia, South Asia, Southeast Asia, East Asia, Russia Asia and Central Asia – each with distinctive political and cultural characteristics, makes it easier to study the continent’s historical development.
