"Korea Confronts The Future" is a timely publication that seeks to capture the dynamics of change on the Korean peninsula today by linking three broad dimensions in twelve scenarios: the condition of the South Korean economy, the trajectory of North-South relations and the changing role of Korea’s regional neighbours and the United States. While it is impossible to know what the future holds, this book posits alternative possibilities and explores the implications of each. "Korea Confronts The Future" offers a thought-provoking assessment on the challenges facing Korea and a comprehensive outlook on Korea’s future.
