Despite witnessing phenomenal economic growth and the spread of democratization in recent decades, as well as impressive intra-regional exchanges and interactions in the economic and cultural spheres, the Northeast Asian region still experience wounds from past wrongs that were committed in times of colonialism, war and dictatorship. Overcoming these historical animosities has become one of the most pressing issues of the future for the region. Of all the countries in the Northeast Asia region coping with this historical injustice, the Republic of Korea stands out as both a victim and an aggressor. Being a nation that has addressed issues of both internal and external injustice, Korea becomes the focus of this volume. Using examples of injustice from the colonial and the Second World War period, the Korean civil War, the current stage of Korean transitional justice and broader regional and global perspectives, the book concludes with a section on forward-looking approaches for arriving at reconciliation in the Asian region. This is a significant book that will be of huge interest to anyone studying East Asian politics, history or society.

This edited volume examines the concept of overhangs or legacies or negative stereotypical images in international relations and their impact on bilateral relations between geographically proximate states in East Asia. The case studies chosen — Japan-Korea, Japan-China, Vietnam-China, Thailand-Myanmar and Thailand-Cambodia — demonstrate conclusively that bilateral overhangs or legacies have a significant impact on contemporary international relations. Such images are regularly replicated and stoked by a variety of constituencies including state agencies for their own selfish interests. The evidence also points to the fact that such bilateral relationships are relatively self-contained and often operate with their own dynamics. Powerful condensation symbols are appropriated to weave a story of the virtuous self and the stereotypical other. This negative image and its replication is important to an understanding of turbulent bilateral relations in East Asia and also helps to inform how such relations can be brought to an even keel.

Wie sind die Westdeutschen in den fünfziger Jahren mit dem Problem der NS-Vergangenheit politisch umgegangen? Nicht nur die von Adenauer geführte Bundesregierung, sondern auch die sozialdemokratische Opposition zeigte sich bereit, dem massiven gesellschaftlichen Verlangen nach einem „Schlußstrich“ unter die seit 1945 praktizierte Entnazifizierung und die Ahndung von NS-Straftaten zu entsprechen. Das Ergebnis war eine „Vergangenheitspolitik“, die schließlich sogar schwerstbelasteten Kriegsverbrechern die Freiheit brachte und den späteren Vorwurf einer „unbewältigten Vergangenheit“ begründete.
