Rowman & Littlefield, 01-01-2006 - 257 trang
This engaging text provides a concise history of Korea from the beginning of human settlement in the region through the late nineteenth century, equally emphasizing social, cultural, and political history. Michael Seth synthesizes recent scholarship to provide a clear understanding of Korean history, also exploring important historiographical issues in an accessible discussion. The author's chronological narrative is enhanced by vivid descriptions of everyday life for both elite and non-elite members of society during various historical periods. Students will find the historical maps illustrating the changes in the region over time and the annotated bibliography of works in English is a valuable compliment to this comprehensive history.
