Guy Lamolinara from the Library of Congress speaks with Sheila Miyoshi Jager, who will appear at the 2013 National Book Festival on September 22, 2013, on the National Mall in Washington, D.C.
Sheila Miyoshi Jager is chair of the Department of East Asian Studies at Oberlin College. Her first book on Korean nationalism was “Narratives of Nation Building in Korea: A Genealogy of Patriotism. She followed that with “Ruptured Histories: War, Memory and the Post-Cold War in Asia." Her new book focuses on a topic much in the news. “Brothers at War: The Unending Conflict in Korea" is a military, political and cultural history of the war, seen as spanning from 1945 to the present, and its global impact told from the American, North and South Korean, Soviet-Russian and Chinese perspectives.
