The Japan-South Korea Identity Clash

Authors: Scott A. Snyder and Brad Glosserman

Yet despite their shared interests, shared values, and geographic proximity, divergent national identities have driven a wedge between them. Drawing on decades of expertise, Scott A. Snyder and Brad Glosserman investigate the roots of this split and its ongoing threat to the region and the world.
