First, I entirely agree with you that western scholarship on the peopling of Manchuria, the speakers of Transcaucasian languages, and in particular the origins of Korea have been entirely too dependent of Chinese histories, and insufficiently critical of them.

But having said that, I don’t have the expertise to critique your book and paper in detail. I am not knowledgeable enough about either Chinese or Korean languages and scripts to be a competent reviewer of your work. Furthermore, my expertise is in archaeology, not linguistics.But I am in total agreement with your point of view!

So, while I cannot evaluate your specific arguments, I agree with your premises about the non-Chinese languages of Manchuria and the Korean peninsula.
