China’s history textbooks are full of historical inaccuracies, including claims that the country never conquered Japan, which it did in World War II.
In the textbook of Chinese history, titled History of Asia: Aotearoa, it claims that Japan never occupied China, a claim that contradicts the official history of the country that was published in 1945.
The textbook also contains several errors that have been debunked by scholars and experts.
The textbook’s author, Jiang Yang, told The Associated Press that he made the errors as he had a hard time understanding why textbooks have so many errors.
“I’m a bit of a problem maker, so I’m not sure why I did it,” Jiang said.
The Chinese history textbook was released in November.
It is based on a previous work by the National History Museum of China and is available for free online.
The AP asked Jiang for an interview, but the author said he didn’t have time.
He said he had learned from mistakes and did not regret the errors.
The History of China: Aomearoa (history) textbook comes with a disclaimer saying it “does not constitute a substitute for professional, academic, or government-approved professional knowledge or skills, or for knowledge and skills that have already been developed.”
Jiang said the textbook was not intended to be taken as a comprehensive source for all China’s historical knowledge.
But experts said the text is outdated, which could make it difficult for students to learn about the country’s past.
“You need a certain level of understanding of history,” said Charles M. Kagan, an expert on China and Asia at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.
“You need to have a very clear understanding of the context and the sources.
This doesn’t do that.
This does not do that.””
There is a real danger in this textbook,” Kagan added.”
If you just read it in the context of textbooks of other countries, you get a very misleading impression of the past,” he said.
According to the AP, the textbook is not the first time that China has made incorrect history claims.
It was also incorrect in 2013 when the textbook claimed that China had a long history of building and expanding military installations.
In 2013, China’s education ministry announced that a new history textbook would be produced and published this year that will be “more comprehensive” than the current one.
The ministry also said the book will be more accessible to all students.
