Tao argues that the Silk Road stemmed primarily from the combined result of a Han Chinese military gambit to obtain Central Asian horses, and a Bactrian strategy to align commercial interests with political expediency during a period of dynastic decline. Evidence of those motivations can be sourced to both ancient literary texts and sculptural, osteological, and genetic research on Chinese horses.
Nguyen analyzes motherhood and labor practices in a well-known Vietnamese enclave forged from a series of distinct migration waves beginning in the 1970s. Within Little Saigon, thousands of Vietnamese women made great sacrifices, forgoing their personal education, career, and time to raise their children and to uphold centuries-old Vietnamese ideals of motherhood.
From 1960 to the early 1970s, the five core Metabolists—Kiyonori Kikutake, Noboru Kawazoe, Fumihiko Maki, Masato Ohtaka, and Kisho Kurokawa – theorized a new urban order that analogized a city with living organisms. Nakamachi theorizes that Metabolism’s legacy is not demonstrated in the movement’s initial fixation with the Japanese context, but rather in the theories’ adaptability to the rapidly changing global environment.
