Korea’s Place in the Sun: A Modern History

135,00 

We’ve been looking for a meaningful book about South Korea for a long time – a book from which you can learn a lot, but also easily written. Korea’s Place in the Sun: A Modern History meets both of these conditions: you can read here about the origins of Korean statehood, about Japanese colonization, about the Korean War and about all the problems that Korea (especially South Korea) has faced in recent decades.

Cumings writes about the traditional values on which Korean society has relied for centuries, as well as about the stereotypes about Korea that the rest of the world had and still has. He explains the tensions that led to the conflict on the Korean peninsula and shows that the division into the “good” (democratic South) and “bad” (communist North) is a delusion, because the reality is much more complicated.
