Congratulations to Professor Lisa Yoneyama for receiving the 2018 best book award in Humanities and Cultural Studies from the Association of Asian American Studies for her book, Cold War Ruins: Transpacific Critique of American Justice and Japanese War Crimes (Duke University Press). The AAAS selection team commended Prof. Yoneyama’s latest book:
“Cold War Ruins presents a stunningly masterful engagement with the most pressing concerns in the fields of Asian American studies and Asian studies/area studies today. In recent years, there has been much discussion in both fields about the necessity for dialogue and engagement across these disciplinary divides. Cold War Ruins exemplifies the very best this cross-fertilization can offer.”
Prof. Yoneyama’s award will be recognized at the upcoming AAAS annual conference in San Francisco, California in March, 2018.
