Brothers at war : the unending conflict in Korea by Sheila Miyoshi Jager( Book )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 1,227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than sixty years after North Korean troops crossed the 38th parallel into South Korea, the Korean War is still not over--yet it has become a forgotten episode in American history. Now, Sheila Miyoshi Jager combines international events with previously unknown personal accounts to create a comprehensive new history of that war. From American, Korean, Soviet and Chinese perspectives, she explores its origins, development and global implications. The epic story begins in mid-World War II, when Roosevelt, Stalin, and Churchill fiercely debated the possibility of Korean independence, and ends in the present day as North Korea, with China's aid, starves its population as it stockpiles nuclear weapons. Drawing on newly available diplomatic archives in several nations, this is the first account to examine both the military and the social, cultural, and political aspect of the war and its impact.--From publisher description

On the uses of cultural knowledge by Sheila Miyoshi Jager( )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author explores the role that cultural knowledge must play in thinking about a new strategy for counterinsurgency. Although the importance of cultural awareness and understanding of adversary societies has been widely recognized as essential to operations and tactics on the battlefield, its significance has been largely ignored in formulating the broader strategic goals of counterinsurgency. The author highlights the importance of culture, and cultural awareness, in formulating a broad strategy for counterinsurgency which also has wide-ranging implications for U.S. foreign policy
The politics of identity : history, nationalism, and the prospect for peace in post-Cold War East Asia by Sheila Miyoshi Jager( )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Both the Taiwan Strait and the Korean peninsula harbor real dangers for the Northeast Asian region. The clash between an increasingly divergent nationalist identity in China and in Taiwan represent a new challenge for U.S. policy in this area. Similarly, the rise of pan-Korean nationalism in South Korea, and an unpredictable North Korean regime that has succeeded in driving a wedge between Seoul and Washington, has created another highly combustible zone of potential conflict. The author explores how the United States might respond to the emerging new nationalism in the region in order to promote stability and peace. Offering a constructivist approach which highlights the central role that memory, history and identity play in international relations, the monograph offers wide-ranging implications for U.S. foreign policy

Brothers at war : the unending conflict in Korea by Sheila Miyoshi Jager( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The Armistice Agreement of March 1953 ended the Korean War, but the discord between the North and South remains unresolved. The lack of a formal peace treaty at the end of the war led to numerous military, political, and economic tensions on both sides. In light of events such as the North Korean raid on the presidential Blue House in Seoul in 1968, its attack on present-day Myanmar in 1983, naval conflicts along the Yellow Sea in the early 2000s, nuclear threats and trade suspension, the endurance of the division between North and South Korea is clear. American, Chinese, and Russian competition for both control within the Korean Peninsula and a hand in decisions concerning aid exacerbate the divide further. For example, the U.S. accommodated the South Korean regime after the war, but more recently, attempted to aid North Korea in exchange for weapons concessions since the 1990s. North Korean nuclear threats in particular led to U.S. economic assistance, which Dr. Sheila Miyoshi Jager argues North Korea depends on for survival. Jager is the author of the 2013 book, Brothers at War: The Unending Conflict in Korea ... The book devotes a large space to the Korean War itself and brings readers through its consequences to the present. Jager discusses the power motivations of the U.S. and China to enter the war, and how their roles, among other nations, impact the current division on the peninsula. Jager's predictions about the end of the Korean conflict are offered as well"--Video home page
