CHOICE Review

During the 1950s and early 1960s, most historians regarded the Korean War as a necessary conflict to help defeat the spread of international communism. Revisionist historians of the late 1960s and 1970s tended to view it as a civil war that, like Vietnam, the US would have been wise to avoid. Extensive collections of previously unseen documents, particularly from archives in the former Soviet Union, are now available, meriting a new look at the origins of the Korean Conflict. Stueck (Univ. of Georgia) has joined with five other historians, each focusing on Korea's relationship to a different world power. The maps and index are adequate, and each author provides excellent documentation for his/her well-written essay. A keen disappointment is the absence of a bibliography, which one would expect in such a fine scholarly work. A word of caution--there is almost nothing about the military conflict itself, so this should not be chosen as a "first" book on the Korean War. Rather, think of it as a supplement to the more general histories of the Conflict, such as Michael Hickey's The Korean War (2000) or Max Hastings' The Korean War (CH, Jul'88). ^BSumming Up: Recommended. For senior colleges with strong history programs, upper-division undergraduates and above. M. O'Donnell formerly, CUNY College of Staten Island
