This book provides a fresh approach to understanding the origins and possible future direction of the Northeast Asia history wars. Leading scholars in history, literary studies, and education present the complex issue in a historical context by assessing its political and cultural dimensions, particularly with regards to relations between Japan and Korea. Their essays also touch on the significance of civil society efforts to advance peaceful reconciliation and the social and political forces that have worked to frustrate such efforts since 1945. At its core, this volume explores the political significance in the gap between Korean and Japanese civil society versus governmental efforts to resolve issues lingering from the Pacific War in Asia; the significance of cultural as well as political efforts to understanding historical and contemporary relations among Northeast Asian neighboring states; and specific factors-such as textbook reform, revised school curricula, and civil society education efforts- that are working to ameliorate the heretofore deadlocked history wars. Michael Lewis is Professor in the Department of Japanese Studies at the University of Sydney, Australia. He is a historian of modern Japan and its influence on modern East Asian societies and politics.

Notwithstanding their mutual material interdependence and common cultural heritage, these two close neighbors have stayed far from achieving comprehensive cooperation. The author examines contextual-discursive dynamics shaping Turkey-Iraq partial cooperation around critical events, such as the Saadabad-Baghdad pacts, the Gulf War, the US Invasion, and the war against ISIS. Leading pro-government Turkish daily newspapers of the period are analyzed to highlight ambivalent ontological-rhetorical modes and ambiguous political narratives-frames that perpetuate paradoxes of partiality in Ankaras rationalization and contextualization of cooperation with Baghdad and Erbil.

The first regional and chronological categorisation of the cylinder seals used in Syria and North Mesopotamia from about 1800 - 1730 BC. The methodology is new, based firstly on dated seals, some of them only recently excavated, and secondly on the political structure and historical processes of an age which witnessed a new beginning and high point in the history of the region. The result is the identification of regional groupings of seals which coincide approximately with the regional states developing at that time. In each centre the development can be observed of an official iconography for the seals of the ruling elite at court. The groupings of seals provide evidence of immanent developments, foreign influences and mutual relationships.By localising particular topic groups and motifs, it is possible to identify gods and other figures.
