Imperial tombs, Buddhist architecture, palaces, and art treasures in Korea and Japan have attracted scholars, collectors, and conservators-and millions of tourists. As iconic markers of racial and cultural identity at home and abroad, they are embraced as tangible sources of immense national pride and popular "must-see" destinations.

This book provides the first sustained account to highlight how the forces of modernity, nationalism, colonialism, and globalization have contributed to the birth of museums, field disciplines, tourist industry, and heritage management policies. Its chapters trace the history of explorations, preservations, and reconstructions of archaeological monuments from an interregional East Asian comparative perspective in the past century.

MEDIA REVIEWS

The selection and valorization of heritage sites and themes is never neutral, but is packed with judgments derived from the worldviews and values of the choosers. This book's aim is to expose in great detail this know process in a relatively unexamined geographic sphere-that of East Asia and specifically the regions colonized by Japan in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

* Choice *

Heritage Management in Korea and Japan is detailed and highly informative

-- Alexis Dudden * Journal of Asian Studies *

I highly recommend this book to scholars and graduate students in Korean studies, Asian studies, museum studies, and those interested in post-colonialism in general.

-- Kyung Hyo Chun * Pacific Affairs *

Pai's scholarly work will be an excellent guidebook to understanding how state authorities in East Asia (and elsewhere) manipulate historical memory. All scholars, students, and ordinary people interested in nationalism in East Asia will find her analysis intriguing and insightful.

-- Takashi Yoshida * Monumenta Nipponica *
