9780761821588: Paekpom Ilchi: The Autobiography of Kim Ku

Kim Ku was highly involved in the struggle for Korea's independence from Japan, and now the autobiography of this celebrated national figure, before only available in Korean, Chinese, or Japanese, has been translated into English. Kim's writings detail the rise of Korea, from inception to the modern 'Two Koreas.' In addition, a major statement of political philosophy by Kim has been translated, and Jongsoo Lee has added an insightful introduction, a table comparing the dates of world events to dates in Kim's life, and a compilation of biographical sketches on the figures that appear in the autobiography. This book, complete with photographs and maps, is a must-read for anyone studying Asian history and culture.

Review:

Lee should be congratulated for being the first to make the amazing story of Kim Ku accessible to the English-speaking world. ( The Journal Of Asian Studies)

Jongsoo Lee has done a great service to the students of modern Korea by translating the autobiography of one of its most famous political figures, Kim Ku. . . Lee provides us with new interpretations of Kim and his role in the unfolding of Korean independence based on in-depth research and solid analysis. (Robert A. Scalapino)
