Overview

The Korean War in Retrospect provides a compilation of presentations from a conference sponsored by the Center for National Security Law and the John Bassett Moore Society at the University of Virginia Law School to celebrate the fortieth anniversary of the outbreak of the Korean War. The conference brought together many scholars and participants from the war. They dealt with many of the historical matters related to the war beginning with its origins, while also dealing with the armistice negotiations, and the failure of the war as a practice of deterrence. However, the major focus falls on the nature and ramifications of the war and what can be learned from the results in the long term in regard to the practice of war and foreign policy.
