About This Book
Syngman Rhee or Lee, Seung-man (March 26, 1875 - July 19, 1965) was a Korean
politician and the first president of South Korea. His rule, from March 1948 to
April 1960, remains a matter of controversy, arising from Cold War tensions on
the Korean peninsula and elsewhere. Rhee, a professed Christian, was identified
strongly with the conservative, anti-Communist side in Korean politics and
geopolitics, and led South Korea throughout the Korean War. His presidency ended
in resignation following popular protests against a disputed election. He died
in exile in Hawaii.
