In a work that synthesizes crucial developments in international relations at the close of the twentieth century, Bruce Cumings -- a leading historian of contemporary East Asia -- provides a nuanced understanding of how the United States has loomed over the modern history and culture of East Asia. By offering correctives to widely held yet largely inaccurate assessments of the affairs of this region, Parallax Visions shows how relations between the United States, Japan, Vietnam, North and South Korea, China, and Taiwan have been structured by their perceptions and misperceptions of each other.Using information based on thirty years of research, Cumings offers a new perspective on a wide range of issues that originated with the cold war -- with particular focus on the possibly inappropriate collaboration between universities, foundations, and intelligence agencies. Seeking to explode the presuppositions that Americans usually bring to the understanding of our relations with East Asia, the study ranges over much of the history of the twentieth century in East Asian-American relations -- Pearl Harbor, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the Korean War, and more recent difficulties in U.S. relations with China and Japan. Cumings also rebuts U.S. media coverage of North Korea's nuclear diplomacy in the 1990s and examines how experiences of colonialism and postcolonialism have had varying effects on economic development in each of these countries. Positing that the central defining experience of twentieth-century East Asia has been its entanglement first with British and Japanese imperialism and then with the United States, Cumings ends with a discussion of how the situation could change over the nextcentury as the economic and political global clout of the United States declines.
Bruce Cumings is Norman and Edna Freehling Professor of History at the University of Chicago. He has won numerous awards and is the author of the acclaimed books "Korea's Place in the Sun," "War and Television," and "The Origins of the Korean War." Cumings writes regularly for "The Nation," the "Atlantic Monthly," the "Los Angeles Times," and the "New York Times Book Review."
"Cummings profiles the many atomic weapons systems that America introduced into South Korea, in flagrant violation of the Armstice Agreement ... Cummings is honest about the US strategy of nuclear blackmail and this material is particularly timely in view of recent revelations that is has secretly introduced nuclear arsenals into 27 countries"--Morning Star, 29 December 1999 "Cumings's views derive from a close study of East Asia over several decades and produce insights that are devastating to American amour propre. His is not just a new perspective but also the source of truly unknown information. There is no other voice quite like that of Bruce Cumings." --Chalmers Johnson, Japan Policy Research Institute [Cumings] can be brutal in his frankness, and is no stranger to controversy. This present collection of essays ... reflects his strengths and weaknesses. All the essays are worth reading ...--Asian Affairs, October 2000
