About This Book

This year marks the 70th anniversary of the Korean War. The time has come for the memory of a living war held by generations who have experienced war in their childhood or adolescence. Researchers in the history of war culture understand this point as an important turning point. Who and how will remember the war when the experience of war no longer exists?

Kwon Heon-ik (a chair professor at Cambridge University in the U.K., who rose to an unrivaled position in the world's anthropology due to his research on the Cold War, including the Korean War and the Vietnam War), examines the reality and the way violence committed by the common people during the Korean War from a family-friendly perspective.

It reveals how the environment of human familiarity in Korea's traditional community has become the main target of politics of the Korean War and how it has been the core of national discipline during the subsequent long Cold War period. The anthropological analysis through field surveys in Andong and Jeju meets with literature, sociology, politics and history to ask about the nature of the Cold War modernity at the forefront of global conflict.
