This is a travel journal of areas of conflict and historical disputes in Northeast Asia. Designed to provide a framework for peace and cooperation among Korea, China, and Japan, the book discusses territorial and historical disputes from various perspectives, applying theories of political science and international relations. It reaffirms that past and present issues-such as the problems of “comfort women” and Gaeseong Industrial Complex-stretching across the three countries like a spider web, have to be resolved through exchanges and cooperation. The authors ponder on the question of how to promote reflection and introspection, tolerance and reconciliation for peace rather than tension and conflicts.
