Editorial Reviews

Review

"Lee's books is one of few studies that attempts to analyze the Korean democratic movement from its origins in the early 1970s to its denouement in the 1990s. While most studies focus on the May 1980 Gwangju uprising or the post 1987 democratic transition and consolidation, Lee's book covers the entire period of the movement, Thus, in Lee's book we get the full story: how the movement emerged in the 1970s, the catalytic effects of the Gwangju uprising in the 1980, and how the movement became increasingly radicalized in the 1980s."—Paul Y. Chang, Mobilization, Fall 2007



"This book is the best, and virtually the only, political ethnography of South Korean antigovernment political activism by students and intellectuals during the 1980s' turbulent democratization periods. While a few works have been published regarding the political democratization processes in South Korea recently, they fail to achieve the accuracy and in-depth description that Namhee Lee has provided through this meticulous survey of real life experiences of South Korean activists in the 1980s."—Jungmin Seo, Korean Studies



"A tour de force! The Making of Minjung puts the South Korean struggles for democracy and social justice on the world historical stage. An answer to the postcolonial predicament, a movement, and a transformative public sphere, minjung emerges as a remarkable historical constellation. Namhee Lee's is that sort of history of the present that takes us into the future."—Nancy Abelmann, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

"In The Making of Minjung, which is notable for its evenhandedness, Namhee Lee has given us what will become the standard work on the confluence of political, economic, and social forces underlying South Korea's transition from military dictatorship to a flourishing democracy."—Donald N. Clark, Trinity University

"The Making of Minjung is a pathbreaking book on an important movement in Korea's contemporary social and political history. It is extremely well researched, full of new insights, and true to the lived realities of student activists and their allies in Korea's democratic development."—Joseph Wong, University of Toronto
