The Other Cold War – Columbia University Press –  Book Cover.

A book by Heonik Kwon.

“In this conceptually bold project, Heonik Kwon uses anthropology to interrogate the cold war’s cultural and historical narratives. Adopting a truly panoramic view of local politics and international events, he challenges the notion that the cold war was a global struggle fought uniformly around the world and that the end of the war marked a radical, universal rupture in modern history.

“Heonik Kwon is reader in anthropology at the London School of Economics and previously taught at the University of Edinburgh. He is the author of Ghosts of War in Vietnam and After the Massacre: Commemoration and Consolation in Ha My and My Lai.”
