Confronting Memories of World War II
European and Asian Legacies399
The legacy of the Second World War has been, like the war itself, an international phenomenon. In both Europe and Asia, common questions of criminality, guilt, and collaboration have intersected with history and politics on the local level to shape the way that wartime experience has been memorialized, reinterpreted, and used. By directly comparing European and Asian legacies, Confronting Memories of World War II, provides unique insight into the way that World War II continues to influence contemporary attitudes and politics on a global scale. The collection brings together experts from a variety of disciplines and perspectives to explore the often overlooked commonalities between European and Asian handling of memories and reflections about guilt. These commonalities suggest new understandings of the war's legacy and the continuing impact of historical trauma.

The book, which acts as a solid overview of various postwar memory cultures, will be an excellent addition to most libraries. It is well-suited for undergraduates, instructors looking to broaden their knowledge of WW II memory cultures, and because of its contemporary relevance, general readers. * Choice * Wars evoke powerful emotions: grief and pride, humiliation and honor, outrage and exultation. As this excellent volume reveals, such feelings can come to form essential parts of national mythologies, and this has been especially so in the case of World War II. * Foreign Affairs * A forceful and timely warning about the dangers of leaving problematic memory legacies unresolved. -- Albert J. Schmidt * Michigan War Studies Review * [R]efreshingly evenhanded....Even those who have studied these issues extensively will find new ideas in this publication. -- Ivo Plsek * Pacific Affairs *
