About This Book
Kyongsaewon Publishing Company has recently published “Historical Evidence of Korean Sovereignty over Dokdo”, a compilation of historical documents and reference materials on Dokdo. Of note, the book is written in English as well as Korean in an effort to broaden international awareness of the significance of Dokdo, a valuable territory of Korea, and to make known a proper historical account of the disputed islets. To provide clear evidence that Dokdo is undoubtedly Korean territory, the book includes references to 119 maps and 59 historical records that confirm Korea’s sovereignty over the Dokdo islets in the East Sea.
This book has been honorably designated as a ‘Outstanding Scholarly Book’ of Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism of Korea in 2007 for its remarkable accomplishments researching about Dokdo.
