Summary

One of the most important conflicts of the second half of the twentieth century, the Korean War defined the Cold War and provided a dress rehearsal for Vietnam ten years later. This concise international history of the war offers a new approach to its understanding, tracing its origins and dynamics to the interplay between modern Korean history and twentieth century world history. Books in the Seminar Studies in History series bridge the gap between textbook and specialist survey. They consist of a brief "Introduction" and/or "Background" to the subject, valuable in bringing the reader up-to-speed on the area being examined, followed by a substantial and authoritative section of "Analysis" focusing on the main themes and issues. There is a succinct "Assessment" of the subject, a generous selection of "Documents" and a detailed bibliography. KEY TOPICS: Tens of thousands of US soldiers and untold millions of Koreans died in this war - the first major arena of the East-West conflict. The narrative examines the social history of the conflict, and includes material on the newly racially integrated US fighting forces, war and disease, women and war and life in the Prisoner of War camps. While most surveys stop at 1953, with the signing of the armistice, Steven Hugh Lee carries the story through to the Geneva Conference in the spring of 1954 - the last major international effort before recent years to negotiate a permanent peace for the Korean peninsula. MARKET: For those interested in American history, Korean history, the Cold War or the Korean War.
