Employing Korean and Japanese scholarship, the authors have produced an original work that is critical of many prevailing myths. The book is a political history tracing the growth of national consciousness among ordinary Korean people- emphasises the important role of external influence in determining modern Koreas fate- explains how Koreas geographical position made the country a repeated battleground for imperialist rivalries between 1880 and 1910- explains how, under Japanese dominion in this years 1910-1945, Korea was transformed into a colonial dependency and the Korean people given limited freedom of expression- and deals with the explosion of internal and international politics following liberation in 1945 and the subsequent attempts of both regimes (north and south) to develop while maintaining vast armies against each other.
