Editorial Reviews

Review

Dudden engagingly explores how the nexus of politics, war memory, and apology shapes contemporary trilateral relations between Korea, Japan, and the United States.

(Jeff Kingston Japan Times)

Richly and eloquently written.... Recommended.

(Choice 1900-01-00)

A significant contribution on the issue of historical apologies... This book should be required reading.

(Matthew Penney Pacific Affairs 1900-01-00)

Rich with insights... for specialists, for twentieth-century historians, and for general readers interested in a deeper understanding of the politics of history.

(Sarah Kovner, University of Florida Journal of World History 1900-01-00)

Dudden traces the intricacies and ironies of history in Northeast Asia in a compelling narrative that indicts many governments and political figures in the process, providing essential reading for anyone wishing to learn more about these complex issues.

(Elizabeth S. Dahl ID: International Dialogue 1900-01-00)

Review

What does it mean for a country to apologize for sins committed in the past? Who gets to decide whether sufficient apology has been offered? This important work of international history addresses what such apologies mean and for whom. Alexis Dudden explores the subject with great care and specificity, and her analysis of multiple issues is splendid. I know of no other book like it.

(Marilyn B. Young, New York University, author of The Vietnam Wars, 1945-1990)

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By J. Wactor on April 2, 2011
Format: Hardcover
At just under 200 pages Dudden's book on international relations is short, almost too short given the complexities of the issues. This is not to say that the author did not conduct thorough research on the subjects of his chapters. He offers valuable insight and introduction to interest groups and political figures in ways that contextualize the significance of their political force in their respective country. For example, the comparison of a Japanese political critic to Bill O'Reilly really connected the issue he was discussing. Dudden's writing is articulate, educational, but also engaging in this way and I did not find it a dull read in the the least.

However, I can not help but feel that he only scratches the surface of diplomatic apologies between the three countries. Many incidents and facts that he places within his chapters have the potential to incorporate more detail and help paint a fuller picture between the two countries. To contrast this critique, it has to be understood that international relations is vastly complex and the information demands that authors pick which issues to focus on to paint a picture of the dominant issues between these countries. Nonetheless, Dudden mentions issues and incidents that beg to be explored more thoroughly. And at it's current size I can't help but think that it wouldn't have hurt to do just that, especially given its current listed price ($50 at time of writing.)

'Troubled Apologies' is broken into four chapters that involve international issues between Japan, Korea, and the United States. He covers a wide-array of issues to explain the complex and politically charged atmosphere, any of which is insightful and worth studying.

It was exactly what I was looking for, a 3rd party unbiased view to nullify both sides arguments. It is a great resource for any school reports regarding the Japan Korea bilateral relationship. It has information that you will not normally find.
