This book examines both history textbook controversies AND teaching historical controversy in Asian contexts. The different perspectives provided by the book's authors offer numerous insights, examples, and approaches for understanding historical controversy to provide a practical gold mine for scholars and practitioners. The book provides case studies of history textbook controversies ranging from treatments of the Nanjing Massacre to a comparative treatment of Japanese occupation in Vietnamese and Singaporean textbooks to the differences in history textbooks published by secular and Hindu nationalist governments in India. It also offers a range of approaches for teaching historical controversy in classrooms. These include Structured Academic Controversy, the use of Japanese manga, teaching controversy through case studies, student facilitated discussion processes, and discipline-based approaches that can be used in history classrooms. The book's chapters will help educational researchers and curricularists consider new approaches for curriculum design, curriculum study, and classroom research.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Controversial History Education in Asian Contexts deftly explores the role of controversial histories within and across multiple epistemological paradigms. ... Cutting across all cases within this volume is the overarch-ing goal of developing an informed and active citizenry, which is a social education rendering of history and its utility. ... [T]his volume collectively offers provocative points of departure as unique contexts grapple with the critical charge of positioning students to explore controversial normative and moral issues in historical and contemporary forms. The inclusion of controversial issues in the curriculum may help improve students' critical thinking, prepare them to participate fully and effectively in democratic societies, encourage political engagement, and develop a commitment to democratic values." --Thomas Misco, Miami University, USA. Published in TRaNS: Trans -Regional and -National Studies of Southeast Asia, Available on CJO 2015 doi:10.1017/trn.2015.3
