About This Book
By examining the controversial Park Chung-hee period (1961~1979), this book helps readers rediscover the socioeconomic origins of modern Korea. The essays in this book, written by twelve noted Korean social scientists, discuss the relationship between South Korea's economic development and totalitarianism in the form of the Park dictatorship. The book contests those who refuse to acknowledge the economic achievements made possible by Park's policies on the one hand and challenges those who glorify Park with blind admiration on the other. The authors maintain that it is necessary to comprehensively explore the meanings of development and dictatorship as they coexisted during the Park's tenure. This book is divided into 3 parts; Introduction and Overview of The Political Economy of Developmental Dictatorship, The Lights and Shadows of Economic Development, and Political Sociology of the Developmental Dictatorship Regime. Lee Byeong-cheon, the editor of this book, holds a PhD in economics at Seoul National University. He is a professor in the Department of Economics and International Trade at Gangwon National University.
