Product Overview

Whether it''s the Vatican addressing its role in the Second World War or the United States government atoning for its treatment of native Hawaiian islanders, apologizing for history has become a standard feature of the international political scene. Examining the interplay between political apology and apologetic history, Alexis Dudden focuses on the problematic relationship that binds Japanese imperialism, South Korean state building, and American power in Asia. Dudden follows the contours of this history in the postwar era through a wide variety of diplomatic, cultural, and social considerations. In doing so, she argues that the process has tied these countries into a knot from which none can escape without undoing decades of mythmaking that masquerades as national history and shapes national identities.
