9780520204188: Echoes of the Past, Epics of Dissent: A South Korean Social Movement

Echoes of the Past, Epics of Dissent, the story of a South Korean social movement, offers a window to a decade of tumultuous social protest in a postcolonial, divided nation. Abelmann brings a dramatic chapter of modern Korean history to life—a period in which farmers, student activists, and organizers joined to protest the corporate ownership of tenant plots never distributed in the 1949 Land Reform.

From public sites of protest to backstage meetings and negotiations, from farming villages to university campuses, Abelmann's highly original study explores this movement as a complex process always in the making. Her discussion moves fluently between past and present, local and national, elites and dominated, and urban and rural. Touching on major historical issues, this ethnography of dissent explores contemporary popular nationalism and historical consciousness.

From the Back Cover:

"This book is almost alone in the literature on Korea for the sweep and sensitivity with which Abelmann situates peasants in the terrain of contested history (which I would describe as what the peasants know in their bones, versus what the state and the landlords wish them to believe." (Bruce Cumings, Northwestern University)

About the Author:

Nancy Abelmann is Assistant Professor in the departments of Anthropology and East Asian Languages and Cultures at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.
