9780791440261: Korean-American Relations: 1866-1997 (SUNY Series in Korean Studies) (Suny Series, Korean Studies)

Leading historians and Asian-specialists explore key aspects of United States-Korean relations.

Built upon the highly successful volume One Hundred Years of Korean-American Relations, 1882-1982, this book describes Korea's importance to the United States and the development of the current relationship. The ramifications of this relationship are evident by the facts that South Korea now constitutes America's seventh largest trading partner and 37,000 American troops remain stationed there on alert. North Korea, however, continues to harbor a deep resentment of the United States and its southern neighbor and maintains the fifth largest standing army in the world, situated just north of the world's most fortified demarcation line at the 38th parallel.

"At this critical juncture in our relations with North and South Korea, it is highly beneficial to have a comprehensive, up-to-date survey of the entire history of American-Korean relations by senior scholars who share with us a lifetime of research. Diverse views are set forth on certain key questions, giving the reader an opportunity to weigh some of the foremost issues in this vital relationship, past and present." -- Robert A. Scalapino, University of California, Berkeley

"This book provides a refreshingly useful, informative, insightful, and accurate treatment of the subject of Korean-American relations. It adds much to the comprehension of the now rapidly developing bilateral relations between the two countries, which have been relatively obscure. It will prove useful reading and is likely to be valuable to a wide audience that includes students, policy makers, regional specialists, as well as to readers with a general interest in world politics. This is a worthwhile volume with imaginative, thought-provoking, if not exhaustive, coverage of Korean-American relations." -- In K. Hwang, Bradley University
