The New Koreans: The Story of a Nation- Review

Clear-minded, richly detailed portrait of Korea through the lens of its past and prospects for the future. Extremely interesting how South Korea became disconnected from its complex, storied, and influential past as the result of its colonization, invasion, and tumultuous wars of the 20th century, but rose up from the ruin to become one of the most vibrant and influential cultures and economies of the 21st century.
