Drawing on multi-archival research in Korean, Russian and English, this book looks at the complexity and changes in Stalin's policy toward Korea for answers about the division of Korea in 1945 and the failure of reunification between 1945 and 1948. Lee argues that the trusteeship decision is key to the division's origins and permanency.

Review:

"Relying on both primary and secondary sources, notably newly accessible Soveit archives, Lee meticulously goesw over major wartime conferences and decisions among the Allied powers concerning the future shape of Korea. . .this book is an illuminating addition to scholarship on modern Korean history." - Vipan Chandra, Pacific Affairs"Jongsoo Lee's The Partition of Korea after World War II is an outstanding achievement. Lee provides a comprehensive and complex account of Korea's partition using an astonishingly impressive array of American, Russian, and Korean archival sources. His thorough and subtle analysis has set a new and very high standard for the subject. Many diplomatic historians aspire to write history from a multinational and multiarchival perspective but fall short: Jongsoo Lee, however, has not. His book is properly subtitled A Global History." - John Earl Haynes, author of Venona: Decoding Soviet Espionage in America

"[A] close and thoughtful analysis of one of the most long-lasting and troublesome elements of Stalin's postwar foreign policy... This book provides the most extensive examination of this subject yet published and is particularly valuable for charting simultaneously the development of Soviet and American policy toward the peninsula together with the actions of Korean political leaders." - The Russian Review

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Condition: New. 248 pages. Dimensions: 8.3in. x 5.4in. x 0.9in.Sixty years after Koreas partition into South Korea and North Korea, a full understanding of how this partition occurred is still wanting. Based on a careful examination of sources in Russian, English and Korean, including new archival evidence from Moscow, this book seeks to provide this understanding. Taking into account not only the policies of the Soviet Union and the United States but also the roles played by the Koreans themselves, Jongsoo Lee untangles the complex dynamics of the Korean partition, placing this partition in the context of modern world history and the emerging Cold War. Comparing Korea with Germany, Austria, Finland and elsewhere after World War II, Lee suggests possible alternative outcomes to Korean partition, thus shedding light on Koreas present predicament as she faces the challenges of reunification. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Seller Inventory # 9781403969828
