This is the most reliable and popular history of Korea available in English. The tumultuous developments of the modern era receive the greatest coverage, but the book’s balanced treatment of traditional Korea emphasizes cultural events as integrally related to the political, social, and economic evolution of this ancient nation. Five outstanding scholars give a wide-angle view of each distinct period, elucidating the past while providing new understanding of the vast changes that have taken place in Korea.
