This original and imaginative book uses the study of twentieth-century Pacific wars to clarify the subtle yet radical changes sweeping through East Asia with the ending of the Cold War. Penned by some of the best known and most respected voices in the field, these essays are a reminder that within ruptured histories, familiar themes endure: expanding American military power in the Asian Pacific; resurgent nationalisms; and the continuing dominance of war memories in cherished national myths.
