Introduction
The Northeast Asia is a geographic region, here understood as comprising of Northeast China (the provinces of Heilongjiang, Jilin, Liaodong), the territory on the Amur and Ussuri Russia annexed in 1858 and 1868 (Outer Manchuria) and the Korean Peninsula.

Terminology
Northeast Asia is a region where ideological conflict (North versus South Korea), differing views over recent common history (China, the Koreas versus Japan over the perception of Japanese rule over Korea and parts of China 1905-1945) and territorial disputes affect the way history is viewed in these countries.
Chinese historiography has long differentiated between the Han Chinese and other ethnic groups, has viewed Han Chinese history as Chinese history, regarded Yuan and Qing as foreign Barbarians who suppressed China. The PRC has adopted a different definition of the Chinese nation, being composed of the Han Chinese and all the minorities living on Chinese territory.
The geographical terms used in Western texts on Northeast Asia were shaped in the 13th century, China deriving from the Jin Dynasty which ruled Northern China 1115-1234, Korea from Goryeo (which ruled most of Korea from 936 to 1392). Manchuria long was known to the West as being part of Eastern Tartary; the term Manchuria became commonly used in the 19th century.
China in the 20th century developed a historical terminology in defiance of foreign intrusions of Qing territory; for example, the PRC rejects usage of the term Manchuria, prefering the term Northeast China instead.
In English language texts, Korean historians apply the term Korean as including precedessor states such Silla, Baekje, Goguryeo and Balhae; they also apply the term China/Chinese as refering to Han Chinese, not to the PRC definition of the Chinese nation.

Prehistory
By the onset of the 4th millennium BCE, millet was cultivated in suitable parts of Manchuria and Korea; rice was cultivated in southern parts of Korea from the late 3rd millennium BCE. During the Upper Xiajiadian culture (S. Manchuria) 1200-600 BCE, bronze was used in sufficient quantity and quality to justify the statement the application of the term 'Bronze Age'.

600-108 BCE
Korean and Chinese sources mention Gojoseon as the oldest kingdom in the region. A Korean source gives 2333 BCE as the year of its establishment; a Chinese source associates its foundation with a Chinese prince of the 12th century BCE; both sources were compiled much later and are to be regarded as part of mythology requiring the interpretation of experts. First contemporary (Chinese) sources refer to Gojoseon in the 7th century BCE.
In the 4th century BCE, the Byunhan Confederation is recorded, covering the southern parts of Korea; it is the predecessor of Baekje, Silla and the Gaya Confederacy. In the 2nd century BCE, the state of Buyeo was established in central Manchuria; Goguryeo and Baekje later claimed to be its successors.

108 BCE-668 CE
In 108 BCE, Han conquered Wiman Joseon and established commanderies on the Korean peninsula, the most importang being Lelang. Following the fall of Han in 220 CE, control over the remaining commanderies in Southern Manchuria and Korea was exercised by Cao Wei (until 265), then by Jin, until the last commandery, Lelang, was conquered by Goguryeo in 313.
Western Manchuria was controlled by the proto-Mongol Donghu or Xianbei, Shamanist pastoral nomads. The Tungusic Yemaek inhabited S. and the N. Korean peninsula. The Tungusic Jurchen inhabited E. Manchuria.. Sources mention other groups sharing the environment; the formation of early states like Buyeo, Goguryeo and Baekje is associated with the Yemaek.
At the beginning of this era there were numerous polities on the Korean peninsula and in Manchuria. Out of them emerged the Kingdoms of Buyeo (C. Manchuria, 2nd century BCE-494 CE), Goguryeo (S. Manchuria extending into N. Korea, 37 BCE-668 CE), Baekje (SW Korea, 18 BCE-660 CE) and Silla (SE Korea, 57 BCE-892 CE), the Gaya Confederacy (42-562 CE) and states (polities which did not evolve into kingdoms) such as Okjeo (2nd century BCE-5th century CE).
The period is characterized by the elimination of Chinese sovereignty from the area, by a process in which smaller states were absorbed by stronger ones, and by Sinification (a.o. by introducing Buddhism in its Chinese adaptation, introduced in Goguryeo from 372, in Baekje from 384, in Silla from the late 4th century onward; by the 6th century it had established firm roots). Written Chinese became a lingua franca in Eastern Asia; on the Korean peninsula, Idu, a Korean interpretation of Chinese script, emerged.

668-926
Silla, allied with Tang, in 660 conquered Baekje, in 668 Southern Goguryeo; Korean historians refer to the period from 668 to 892 as Unified Silla.
In the Manchurian parts of Goguryeo and the Northeast of Korea, in 668 a successor state named Great Jin was established, which in 698 was renamed Balhae (in Chinese called Bohai); Balhae controlled Southern and Eastern Manchuria. King Mun of (737-793) Balhae established diplomatic relations with Tang; i.e. he formally recognized the Tang Emperor as his sovereign. Balhae and Silla were traditional enemies.
Liaoning was directly controlled by Tang, until it got lost to the Khitan in the 8th century; thus Balhae was severed from direct contact with Tang. In the late 9th and the early 10th century, first Unified Silla (892) and then Tang (907) disintegrated.

926-1206
The Khitan polity in Manchuria in 907 proclaimed itself to be the Liao Dynasty. In in a series of campaigns, Liao conquered Balhae (Bohai; by 926) In the early 11th century, Liao established de facto control of Northern China (then under the Song Dynasty). In 1127 the Liao Dynasty was overthrown and replaced by the Jin Dynasty (the Jurchen), originating from Northeastern Manchuria.
In 918 Goryeo (until 1392) succeeded Hugoguryeo (Taebong); by 936 it hat conquered Hubaekje and Husilla, and unified most of the Korean peninsula (stretches of Northeastern Korea were controlled by the Jurchen). In 1105, Goryeo annexed Tamna (Jejudo). Gukjagam, a national institution where the Confucian classics were taught, was established in 992. The dynasty promoted Seon Buddhism.
During the Goryeo Dynasty, Gugyeol was used, a Chinese based script which included Korean language words to which Chinese characters had been allocated.

1206-1368
The Mongol Empire was established by Genghis Khan in 1206 and rapidly conquered its neighbours, in genocidal warfare. The Mongols established direct control over Manchuria. Following a series of Mongol invasions, Goryeo in 1259 accepted the status of being a Mongol vassall (since 1271 Yuan vassall). Both Yuan and Goryeo favored Buddhism.

1368-1636
In 1368 the Yuan were ousted from China by the Ming. The Ming established control of southern and eastern Manchuria.
In 1392 a military expedition sent by Goryeo (Korea) against Ming turned around, ousted the King of Goryeo and established the new Joseon Dynasty; with a change in dynasties came a change in allegiances; while Goryeo had recognized Yuan, Joseon was to recognize Ming. The capital was moved from Kaesong to Seoul. The Joseon dynasty introduced Neo-Confucianism as official philosophy, confiscated the land of Buddhist monasteries.
From 1592 to 1598, Japanese forces invaded Joseon; with the aid of Ming, the invaders were defeated.

1636-1860
In 1636, Nurhaci proclaimed the Qing Dynasty; in 1644 the Qing occupied Beijing; by the 1660es they were in control of mainland Han China. Russian explorers had reached the Pacific in 1636; Russia and Qing China signed the treaties of Nerchinsk 1689 and Kiakhta 1727 in which borders between either powers' spheres of interest were fixed. Manchuria was treated as an area off-limits to Han Chinese.
Following the Second Manchu Invasion of Korea 1636, Joseon switched its allegiance from Ming to Qing.
In tribute trade with China, Koreans acquired western books (translated into Chinese by Jesuits in China). These books caused the emergence of the movement of Silhak (= western learning) scholars (late 17th into the 19th century). In the late 18th century a community of Koreans who had accepted Christianity based on the reading of Chinese language Christian books emerged; in the early 19th century, Christians suffered persecution.
In 1858, China opened the port of Newchwang (Manchuria, present-day Yingkou) to foreign trade.

1860-1905
In 1860 the Qing administration, just having been defeated by an Anglo-French alliance in the Second Opium War (1856-1860), having been coerced into ceding Outer Manchuria to Russia in 1858/1860 and facing the Taiping Rebellion (1851-1864), began a policy of controlled modernization. Part of that policy was to open up Manchuria (hitherto a no-go area for Han Chinese) to the settlement of Han Chinese (mostly from Shandong Province).
Joseon (Korea) under the Daewongun (1864-1874) had pursued a strict policy of isolation. Following his retirement, Joseon entered into treaties with foreign nations (Japan 1876, U.S. 1880, Germany and Britain 1883).
Japan, which had been coerced to give up its policy of isolation in 1854, pursued a policy of rapid modernization and aimed for territorial expansion, viewing Korea as a potential object of acquisition. In the First Sino-Japanese War 1894-1895, Japan defeated China; China had to recognize Korean independence, to cede Taiwan and to accept the establishment of a Japanese sphere of influence in Southern Manchuria. In 1897 the King of Joseon declared the country to be the Empire of Taehan (i.e. to be an equal of China, thus independent). In 1897/1898, Germany, France and Russia (East Asiatic Triple Alliance) exerted pressure on Japan, to give up its claim over Southern Manchuria or to face the three powers in war. The Japanese attempt to abduct the king of Korea and his son also failed; they managed to escape to the Russian Embassy.
Britain since 1860 had regarded Qing China as its ally, had hoped that Qing China could prevent further Russian territorial expansion. China's defeat by Japan in 1895, its lease of Port Arthur (modern Dalian) to Russia in 1898 and the Boxer Rebellion 1898-1900 had destroyed that illusion. Britain, with its superior navy could check any individual polical rival overseas, but the East Asiatic Triple Alliance had outmanoeuvred British diplomacy. So in 1902 Britain signed a treaty of alliance with Japan. In 1904 Japan went to war with Russia.

1905-1945
In 1905 Japan had defeated Russia (Russo-Japanese War). Japan established a (coerced) protectorate over Korea; Port Arthur became a Japanese leased territory named Kwangtung; the southern half of Manchuria became a Japanese sphere of interest; Northern Manchuria remained Russian sphere of interest.
In 1911 the Chinese Revolution ended the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). While several new governments claimed sovereignty over the territory of Qing China, in effect many regions were under the control of regional strongmen (warlords); the warlord in control of Manchuria 1916-1928 was Zhang Zuolin (Chang Tso Lin, who was supported by the Japanese).
Following the October Revolution 1917, the Russian Empire became the stage of the Russian Civil War. The Russian Far East was a stronghold of the Whites; when hopes for a white victory were no longer realistic, the (white) Far Eastern Republic was established (1920-1922, with Japanese support). By 1922 the Bolzheviks had gained control of the region.
In 1910 Japan converted Korea from protectorate into colony; in 1919 popular resistance in Korea was suppressed by force. The Nationalist Chinese Government in 1928 had ousted Zhang Zuolin and established control over Manchuria. In 1932 Japan occupied Manchuria and established the Empire of Manchukuo, with the last Qing Emperor Pu Yi becoming the first (and only) Emperor of Manchukuo. In fact the Japanese ran the administration of Manchukuo. Manchukuo was regarded "a frontier in Asia", a land which could accept large numbers of immigrants, a land the economy of which could be developed.
In 1934 within the Russian SFSR, the Jewish Autonomous Oblast (Birobidjan) was established. In 1937 a full-scale war between Japanand China broke out which was to last until 1945 (fought outside of Northeast Asia); a war between Japan and the U.S.S.R. 1939 was treated as a low-key event by both countries and quickly terminated.

since 1945
In 1945 Japan surrendered; the territory held by Japan on the Asian mainland, according to the agreement agreed upon at the Postdam Conference (Aug. 1945) was divided into a Soviet zone (Manchuria and North Korea) and a U.S. Zone (South Korea) for the purpose of disarming Japanese troops and repatriating the Japanese military and civilian population. Both occupants introduced their respective political systems; the Cold War began, the wartime natural alliance of the U.S. and the U.S.S.R. turned into ideological conflict. In 1948 both Koreas were released into independence, themselves engaged in the same ideological conflict and both claiming to represent the entire Korean nation; from 1950 to 1953 they fought the Korean War, which ended in the status quo ante.
In 1945 Sovietr troops occupied Manchuria and terminated the Empire of Manchukuo. In 1945 the U.S.S.R. withdrew her troops from Manchuria. In 1949 the Chinese Civil War ended, the People's Republic of China was declared. Late in 1950 the PR China entered the Korean War; Northeast China (Manchuria) became a base of operations; the territory long remained under military administration. In 1968, on the border of Northeast China and the USSR, Chinese and Soviet troops shot at each other.
Northeast China was affected by the stages of political-economic history the PR China went through. The region saw a further influx of Han Chinese immigrants; in the area with a concentration of an ethnic Korean population (Yanbian), now the ethnic Koreans are a minority. The PR China granted its ethnic minorities cultural autonomy. Economic modernization reached Northeast China late, because of the region's history of military administration.
As the U.S.S.R. only declared war on Japan on September 1st 1945, the Russian Far East had been little affected by World War II. The end of Stalinism in 1956, the disintegration of the U.S.S.R. in 1991 and the subsequent liberalization of the economy did affect the region.
