Editorial Reviews

Review

‘Hwang raises questions at every turn and challenges the reader to engage with issues that animated past generations, issues that concern us today, and issues that impinge on our collective future in a world where Korea and Koreans matter.’ – James B. Lewis, University of Oxford, UK

‘Hwang has packed this concise book with pertinent facts and illustrative examples, as well as useful presentations about the interpretive debates that animate the historiography of Korea. Written in lucid and engaging prose, A History of Korea provides a superb introduction to the sweep of Korea’s past, from ancient to recent times.’ – Charles Kim, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA

About the Author

Kyung Moon Hwang is Professor of History and East Asian Languages and Cultures at the University of Southern California, USA. A graduate of Oberlin College and Harvard University, his research covers the modern transformation of Korea, with a focus on state and society in the early 20th century and history disputes in the late 20th century.
