Making the forever war : Marilyn B. Young on the culture and politics of American militarism by Marilyn Blatt Young( file )
5 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 180 libraries worldwide
"The late historian Marilyn B. Young, a preeminent voice on the history of U.S. military conflict, spent her career reassessing the nature of American global power, its influence on domestic culture and politics, and the consequences felt by those on the receiving end of U.S. military force. At the center of her inquiries was a seeming paradox: How can the United States stay continually at war, yet Americans pay so little attention to this militarism? Making the Forever War brings Young's articles and essays on American war together for the first time, including never before published works. Moving from the first years of the Cold War to Korea, Vietnam, and more recent "forever" wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Young reveals the ways in which war became ever-present, yet more covert and abstract, particularly as aerial bombings and faceless drone strikes have attained greater strategic value. For Young, U.S. empire persisted because of, not despite, the inattention of most Americans. The collection concludes with an afterword by prominent military historian Andrew Bacevich"--
The Routledge handbook of the global sixties : between protest and nation-building by Jian Chen( file )
6 editions published between 2018 and 2020 in English and held by 131 libraries worldwide
"As the fiftieth anniversary of 1968 approaches, this book reassesses the global causes, themes, forms, and legacies of that tumultuous period. While existing scholarship continues to largely concentrate on the US and Western Europe, this volume will focus on Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe. International scholars from diverse disciplinary backgrounds explore the global sixties through the prism of topics that range from the economy, decolonization, and higher education, to forms of protest, transnational relations, and the politics of memory."This extraordinary collection is a game-changer. Featuring the cutting-edge work of over forty scholars from across the globe, The Routledge Handbook of the Global Sixties is breath-taking in its range, incisive in analyses, and revolutionary in method and evidence. Here, fifty years after that iconic "1968," Western Europe and North America are finally de-centered, if not provincialized, and we have the basis for a complete remapping, a thorough reinterpretation of the "Sixties."--Jean Allman, J.H. Hexter Professor in the Humanities, Washington University in St. Louis"This is a landmark achievement. It represents the most comprehensive effort to date to map out the myriad constitutive elements of the "Global Sixties" as a field of knowledge and inquiry. Richly illustrated and meticulously curated, this collection purposefully "provincializes" the United States and Western Europe while shifting the loci of interpretation to Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and Latin America. It will become both a benchmark reference text for instructors and a gateway to future historical research." - Eric Zolov, Stony Brook University"This important and wide-ranging volume de-centres West-focused histories of the 1960s. It opens up fresh and vital ground for research and teaching on Third, Second and First World transnationalism(s), and the many complex connections, tensions and histories involved." - John Chalcraft, London School of Economics"This book globalizes the study of the 1960s better than any other publication. The authors stretch the standard narrative to include regions and actors long neglected. This new geography of the 1960s changes how we understand the broader transformations surrounding protest, war, race, feminism, and other themes. The global 1960s described by the authors is more inclusive and relevant for our current day. This book will influence all future research and teaching about the postwar world." - Jeremi Suri, author of The Impossible Presidency: The Rise and Fall of America's Highest Office"--Provided by publisher

Telling the 'truth' to Koreans: U.S. cultural policy in South Korea during the early Cold War, 1947--1967 by Wol-san Liem( file )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 54 libraries worldwide
This dissertation uses State Department records, USIS materials and Korean film and intellectual journals to investigate cultural-policy ideology, goals and programs and their influence in Korean society. It traces an evolution in the orientation of cultural policy from war reporting during the Korean War (1950 to 1953), to efforts to cultivate democratic practices at the end of the 1950s, to an emphasis on citizenship responsibility and economic development during the 1960s. It also looks at the way Koreans engaged with cultural policy activities and the understandings of the United States they promoted. Some Koreans were highly receptive to the image of the United States cultural policy put forth, although they sought to adapt American practices and values to fit Korean society. Others, in particular dissident students and intellectuals, posed critiques of the United States that directly challenged cultural policy's core assumptions and messages
