Yet there has never been clear understanding of how wartime suffering has defined the nation and shaped its people.In Beyond Suffering, a distinguished group of historians of modern China look beyond the geopolitical aspects of war to explore its social, institutional, and cultural dimensions.

The chapters in Part 1, Society at War, reveal how militarization and war can both structure and destabilize society, while those in Part 2, Institutional Engagement, show how institutions and the people they represent can become pawns in larger power struggles.

Lastly, Part 3, Memory and Representation, examines the various media, monuments, and social controls by which war has been memorialized.Based on fragmented accounts of poorly understood incidents, Beyond Suffering pieces together a fuller picture of the multiple fronts on which wars in modern China have been fought, experienced, and remembered.
