Brothers at War: The Unending Conflict in Korea
Brothers at War: The Unending Conflict in Korea |
The Institute for Korean Studies, in co-sponsorship with the Mershon Center for International Security Studies and the East Asian Studies Center, is honored to host Dr. Sheila Miyoshi Jager, for a talk entitled: “Brothers at War: The Unending Conflict in Korea.”This talk will take place on Thursday, October 24, at 12:30 PM at the Mershon Center, 1501 Neil Ave., and will examine the Korean War, thefirst major hot war of the Cold War. Based on Dr. Jager's new book, Brothers at War, this talk integrates newly available sources from across the globe into the story of Korean competition and conflict––along with Great Power competition and conflict–– that launched an unending war between two "brothers" with serious ramifications for the rest of the world. As the essentially continuous war between the Koreas threatens to reach beyond their borders, and as North Korea continues to develop nuclear weapons and long-range missiles, this talk will attempt to explain how Korea and the international community has reached this point.
