What is included with this book?


The Cold War in East Asiastudies Asia as a second front in the Cold War, examining how the six powers--the United States, the Soviet Union, China, Japan, and North and South Korea--interacted one another and forged the conditions that were distinct from the Cold War in Europe. The contributors are among the foremost historians of the new Cold War history, and this book draws on a wide array of newly available archival information in many languages, with particular strength in the use of Russian and Chinese archival material. The Cold War in East Asiashows how as a second front the Cold War in East Asia influenced the shape of the Cold War's first front--the East-West confrontation centering in Europe--and third front in the developing world. Each chapter, while focused on particular countries and particular timespans, situates its story within a broad overview. And the volume stresses the uniqueness of the region's historical experience and explains how it serves as the background to some of the key conflicts in East Asia today.
