Contemporary International Politics II: Korea, Vietnam, and the Cold War in Asia, Spring 2004

[Instructor]
AKAGI,Kanji

[Course Guide]
In this course we will analyze both the Korean War and the Vietnam War by looking at the American commitment to Asia from the 1940s to the 1960s. Although these two wars were fought in the 1950s and 1960s at the height of the Cold War, their origins can be traced to the region's immediate post-World War II conditions. The issues over which these wars were fought continue to influence the political conditions in East Asia today in many ways. Thus, by examining the historical background of these two crucial conflicts, the course aims to advance students' understanding of contemporary East Asia and enable intelligent consideration of the future prospects of the region.Classes: Spring (April to July) 12
One class per week, each 1.5 hours long
