From the Publisher
"Roy is a noted author and Senior Fellow at the East-West Center in Honolulu, and he has written this volume to analyze tensions and grievances in Asia resulting from the outcome of World War II that still affect international diplomacy and trade in the 21st century. Written for those interested in international relations, this book first provides a summary of events such as Nanjing Massacre and the dropping of the atomic bombs on Nagasaki and Hiroshima. The author proceeds to
analyze the interpretations of these events and shows how the positions and policies of postwar governments continue to be shaped by these wartime grievances."
Reference & Research Book News
"This provocative, well-written study should help reverse the current historiographical trend of treating the Pacific War simply as a hagiography of heroes. . . . This important, convincing book will not only reinvigorate Pacific War historiography but also raise important questions about the proper role of history itself. It should be in every significant library in the US. . . . Essential. All collections on the Pacific War or current Asian politics."
"This book is strongly recommended for all history buffs, those interested in northeastern Asian diplomacy, and those interested in basing diplomacy on facts, not myths."
