Summary

What individuals and countries remember and what they forget, and why, tell much about their current values, perceptions, and even aspirations. In this volume international specialists and practitioners from Europe, Asia, and the United States illuminate through sometimes-conflicting interpretations the issues of "remembering and forgetting" that are shaping today's strategic alignments in East and Southeast Asia. The analysis covers how Japan, South and North Korea, China, Southeast Asian countries such as Indonesia and Malaysia, and the United States use memory and history to define their national sense of self and structure their international relations.
