for Bruce Cumings' new book from a (perhaps) unlikely source: Tyler Cowen (more here).
I haven't read the book yet and will, therefore, reserve final judgment (for whatever that's worth). I will say that, based on the reviews--both positive and negative--it doesn't sound as if Cumings is arguing anything terribly new here. He is just pointing out a number of rather uncomfortable truths about the War, the U.S. involvement in Korea etc. etc.
UPDATE: Review of Cumings book by Andrew Salmon here.
