Editorial Reviews

Eleven essays take an innovative cross-disciplinary, cross-cultural approach to the Korean War in presenting multiple views of the "forgotten war" and its aftermath from Asian as well as American perspectives. Viewpoints include those of Korean poets' conflicted between patriotism and brotherhood, American soldier-poets, Korean visual arts and films, a US war correspondent's photos, major Korean writers, and Chinese POWs. The volume concludes with panelists responding to several "imagining a different Korea" scenarios. Based on a 1999 Korea-America Dialogue on the Korean War at the U. of Montana's Maureen and Mike Mansfield Center. West directs the Center, which focuses on Asian studies. Ji-moon is a professor of English at Korea U. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
