Embattled Memories

Choi examines the collective memory of the Korean War through five discrete memory sites in the US and South Korea, including the PBS documentary Battle for Korea, the Utah Korean War Memorial, and the statue of General Douglas MacArthur in South Korea. Choi contends that these are active sites of memory, where counter memories of the war have recently clashed with official, state-sanctioned memories. Through lively and compelling analysis of these five sites, Embattled Memories details the ways in which diverse narratives of the Korean War compete for dominance in our acts of remembering. An important work in two fields: memory studies and military history.

Using broad research, including interviews with more than one hundred Las Vegans, Rex Rowley—who grew up in Las Vegas—examines everyday life in a place that markets itself as an escape from mundane reality.
