About this book
This is the first comprehensive English-language history of the Korean people, offering Western readers a synthesis of the latest and best scholarship on Korean history and culture from the earliest times to the present. Prof. Nahm's work presents a fresh and scholarly: analysis of the origins, the growth and never-ending process of changes in political, economic, social and cultural patterns of the Korean society throughout the ages, as well as historical and contemporary interactions of the Korean people with their neighbors near and far.

The strength of the book lies in its balance. Unlike most other Korean history books, this book covers all aspects of the history of the Korean people–their art, literature, religion, and political, economic and social experiences from the ancient times to the present. It is noteworthy that, for the first time, the recent history and various aspects of national development of both North and South Korea are dealt with in the book.
