Description by the publisher

Beginning in the mid-nineteenth century when Korea became entangled in the world of modern imperialism and the old social, economic and political order began to change; this handbook brings together cutting edge scholarship on major themes in Korean History. Contributions by experts in the field cover the Late Choson and Colonial periods, Korea’s partition and the diverging paths of North and South Korea.

Topics covered include:

  • The division of Korea
  • Religion
  • Competing imperialisms
  • Economic change
  • War and rebellions
  • Nationalism
  • Gender
  • North Korea Under Kim Jong Il
  • Global Korea

The Handbook provides a stimulating introduction to the most important themes within the subject area, and is an invaluable reference work for any student and researcher of Korean History.
