About This Book

All About KOREA is to introduce people, especially students, teachers, foreigners and tourists, to the culture of Korea. It‘s not easy to find this kind of educational book about Korea.

I developed this manuscript through the years at the request of individuals, school boards and other authorities in British Columbia, Canada.

While I was doing the research for this book in Canada and the United States I found that there was a serious shortage of information about Korea for educational purposes. Both the public libraries and the universities lacked suitable educational material about Korea - this is surprising when one considers the importance of Korea as a member of the Pacific Rim and the rest of the world.

I believe that All About KOREA accurately portrays the best of Korea. My hope is that this book will reach the widest possible audience. I feel very strongly that the information presented within these pages is the most relevant information about Korea required by students and teachers.

I would like to thank the Burnaby School Board, as well Ms. Lisa Hwang and other friends who love Korea, for the encouragement to publish an educational book about Korea.
