Korea's place in the sun : a modern history by Bruce Cumings( Book )

15 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and held by 2,229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bruce Cumings's rich narrative focuses on Korea's fractured, shattered, twentieth-century history. In 1910 Korea lost its centuries-old independence, and it remained an exploited colony of Japan until 1945. Then came national division, political turmoil, a devastating war, and the death and dislocation of millions, all of which left Korea still divided and in desperate poverty. Its recovery and spectacular growth over the next generation is one of this century's most remarkable achievements. Cumings provides a compelling account of Korea's travails and triumphs in the modern period
The Korean War : a history by Bruce Cumings( Book )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and Chinese and held by 1,413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Cumings eloquently explains, for the Asian world the Korean War was a generations-long fight filled with untold stories of bloody insurgencies and rebellions, massacres and atrocities. He incisively ties America's current foreign policy back to this remarkably violent war that killed as many as four million Koreans, two thirds of whom were civilians
North Korea : another country by Bruce Cumings( Book )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2011 in English and held by 1,306 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Suffering no misconceptions regarding North Korea's dubious political tradition - from human-rights violations to token democracy - Bruce Cumings insists on a more nuanced understanding of U.S.-North Korean relations. From CIA reports on North Korea's impressive social programs to that country's genuine efforts to address the new strategic environment since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Cumings draws from his extensive knowledge of Korean history and declassified government reports to show that North Korea is as fascinating as it is repellent, as formidable as it is unique and idiosyncratic."--Jacket

War and television by Bruce Cumings( Book )

14 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and Italian and held by 626 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Television has come to play an ever more decisive role in the preparation and planning of war, as well as in its execution. In War and Television Bruce Cumings carefully explores the history of television's relationship to US warmaking since World War II, up to and including its presentation of the carnage in Kuwait and Iraq. Cumings examines Vietnam, long thought to have been the first television war, but finds that characterization more apt for the Gulf conflict which was fought through, packaged by, and sold to the public on television. At the centre of the book is the extraordinary tale of Cumings's own experience as historical consultant to a Thames Television production, Korea: The Unknown War, and his subsequent trials with the Public Broadcasting System when the film was released for North American distribution
Child of conflict : the Korean-American relationship, 1943-1953 by Bruce Cumings( Book )

7 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 605 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Parallax visions : making sense of American-East Asian relations at the end of the century by Bruce Cumings( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In a work that synthesizes crucial developments in international relations at the close of the twentieth century, Bruce Cumings - 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."--Jacket
Dominion from sea to sea : Pacific ascendancy and American power by Bruce Cumings( Book )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 422 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"America is the first world power to inhabit an immense land mass open at both ends to the world's two largest oceans - the Atlantic and the Pacific. This gives America a great competitive advantage often overlooked by Atlanticists, whose focus remains overwhelmingly fixed on America's relationship with Europe. Bruce Cumings challenges the Atlanticist perspective in this innovative new history, arguing that relations with Asia influenced our history greatly. Cumings chronicles how the movement westward, from the Middle West to the Pacific, has shaped America's industrial, technological, military, and global rise to power. He unites domestic and international history, international relations, and political economy to demonstrate how technological change and sharp economic growth have created a truly bicoastal national economy that has led the world for more than a century. Cumings emphasizes the importance of American encounters with Mexico, the Philippines, and the nations of East Asia. The result is a wonderfully integrative history that advances a strong argument for a dual approach to American history incorporating both Atlanticist and Pacificist perspectives" -- from book jacket

Korea : as seen by Magnum photographers by Bruce Cumings( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

More than 230 full-color images by some of the world's most-renowned photographers. South Korea, with its craggy hillsides, gnarled trees, and ancient temples, is steeped in tradition yet, at the same time, is thoroughly modern-the tenth-ranking industrial power in the world. Its capital city, Seoul, is one of the most populous cities in the world and home to such cutting-edge buildings as the Samsung Tower Palace. The beautiful landscape and day-to-day details of life in South Korea are depicted here in images taken by the photographers of Magnum-the famed cooperative whose members are among the greatest photographers of our time. Here we see a rich culture that both respects a dynamic cultural history and celebrates the latest trends in fashion, technology, and architecture. These extraordinary photographs are set in their historical context by an insightful text by historian Bruce Cumings. -- Publisher description from http://books.wwnorton.com (Sep. 29, 2011)
