Welcome to End of Empire
End of Empire is dedicated to a simple premise: events during the 100 days following the bombing of Hiroshima had a profound impact on politics and society throughout Asia for decades to come. The site, which is presented as a daily newspaper, has four integrated components: a pan-asian chronology, expert analyses, photographs and documents, and Special Country Reports that present all events relevant to a country in a single edition. An analytic introduction, by Robert Cribb and Li Narangoa, is presented here.
End of Empire is more than a website. It is a multimedia, multi-platform project with contributions by 90 world-renowned experts that can be experienced not only here, but also on Twitter, Facebook and as a spectacular printed book. Enjoy, engage, and join the conversation!
