Abstract

148 China Review International: Vol. 23, No. 2, 2016 itself by proposing a genre of “history of the future” (p. 270). Although games are set in historical scenarios, “historical situations” are created by the social form of FPS war games (p. 264). As discussed above, the chapters in this volume examine different concerns related to the cultural politics, globalized consumption, reception patterns, and the strategies of rewriting history in a variety of visual texts on the wars in Asia. This book, therefore, will certainly be of interest to students and scholars in East Asian film, Asian history, popular culture, and war history. In the final analysis, this volume not only uncover intimate personal stories and collective screen memories often erased by official histories, it also offers new paradigms that situate war trauma beyond the geopolitical boundaries of nationalism, patriotism, and victimhood. These films not only rewrite history but also reframe the very historiography of war narratives themselves. Jing Jing Chang Jing Jing Chang is an assistant professor of film studies at Wilfrid Laurier University (Ontario, Canada), where she teaches courses in film history, world cinemas, and East Asian cinema. Her research interests include Hong Kong cinema, Cold War culture,
