This comprehensive assessment by experts of the significant literature and research about the Korean War has been designed for broad interdisciplinary use. Edited by Brune, this one-volume research tool evaluates traditional interpretations, recent findings and trends, and points to studies that are still needed on various topics. Twenty-three topical chapters cover the historical background and general references; international aspects of the war and the role and perspectives of major combatants--from the United Nations and Korea to European and Asian and Pacific nations, including information on the most recent sources from the Soviet Union and Communist China; the military policies and the strategies and tactics of the U.S. Army, Navy and Marines, and Air Force; the Korean unification struggle after the war; and the relationship of the U.S. homefront to the Korean War--from the Administration and Congress to public opinion, and the war as seen by women and minorities and through the eyes of the cinema and TV. The book is fully indexed and is easily accessible for varied use by students, teachers, and researchers in different fields and at all levels.

Editorial Reviews

?The Korean War was a defining moment in the Cold War and in American foreign policy. This volume...fills a longstanding need for an overview of trends in historical writing about that conflict....Researchers and students of any aspect of the Korean War should be pleased with this source. Recommended for all academic libraries, particularly those supporting international relations programs and military studies.?-Choice
