Contemporary North and South Korea are nations of radical contrasts: one a bellicose totalitarian state with a failing economy; the other a peaceful democracy with a strong economy. Yet their people share a common history that extends back more than 3,000 years. In this comprehensive new history of Korea from the prehistoric era to the present day, Jinwung Kim recounts the rich and fascinating story of the political, social, cultural, economic, and diplomatic developments in Korea’s long march to the present. He provides a detailed account of the origins of the Korean people and language and the founding of the first walled-town states, along with the advanced civilization that existed in the ancient land of "Unified Silla." Clarifying the often complex history of the Three Kingdoms Period, Kim chronicles the five-century long history of the Choson dynasty, which left a deep impression on Korean culture. From the beginning, China has loomed large in the history of Korea, from the earliest times when the tribes that would eventually make up the Korean nation roamed the vast plains of Manchuria and against whom Korea would soon define itself. Japan, too, has played an important role in Korean history, particularly in the 20th century; Kim tells this story as well, including the conflicts that led to the current divided state. The first detailed overview of Korean history in nearly a quarter century, this volume will enlighten a new generation of students eager to understand this contested region of Asia.

Korea Old & New is an attempt to meet the need for a general history of Korea that provides detailed treatment of the post-1945 period while at the same time describing at some length the traditional historical-cultural milieu from which modern Korea has developed. For understandable reasons the history of Korea always has been poorly chronicled. In the present century, Korea's long suffering under Japanese colonial rule &, since liberation in 1945, a multiplicity of both domestic & external factors have resulted either in tendentious history or in coverage badly skewed in its emphasis on such dramatic events as the Korean War or South Korea's remarkable economic successes. The need for a more balanced survey, then, & one concerned equally with the old Korea & the new, is clear. The coverage of traditional Korea in Korea Old & New is largely based upon Prof. Kibaik Lee's A New History of Korea, published in both Korea & the United States in 1984. In this account, Prof. Lee & his translator, Prof. Edward W. Wagner of Harvard University, have emphasized cultural developments not merely as isolated expressions of the creative spirit of the Korean people but as integrally related to Korea's political, social, & economic history. The book's preponderant concern, however, is with the tumultuous history of Korea's past century or so, & each distinct period is treated by a different specialist. Thus the late traditional years, up to the annexation by Japan in 1910, have been the responsibility of Professor Young Ick Lew of Hallym University, Korea, while the coverage of the period 1910-1990 is by two American authorities on the modern history of Korea: Prof. Michael Robinson, Univ. of Southern California & Prof. Carter J. Eckert, Harvard Univ.
