Summary Disputes over the history of World War II in Asia remain surprisingly intense. Divergent Memories examines the opinions of powerful individuals to pinpoint the sources of conflict, from Japanese colonialism in Korea and atrocities in China to the American decision to use atomic weapons against Japan. Without labeling any views as "distorted" or ignoring dissenting voices, Gi-Wook Shin and Daniel Sneider analyze how historical memory has developed, been formulated, and even been challenged in each case. --Cover.
