9780924304668: Korea in World History (Key Issues in Asian Studies)

"Korea in World History" is a short introduction to Korea designed for general readers and students in secondary school and undergraduate college. The approach is historical and chronological and emphasizes Korean contributions to world civilization in such areas as art, philosophy, and literature, as well as Korea's place among nations of northeast Asia. Considerable attention to the modern era and Korea's twentieth century experience, including colonialism and national division during decades of the Cold War. The Korean War era is a major topic, together with the emergence of the Republic of Korea (South Korea) as a world economic power. One chapter deals with the development of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea), and another assesses the prospects for Korean reunification. The writing style is concise and accessible, with easily identifiable emphases on major themes and points.
