Summary:
"This engaging text provides a concise history of Korea from the beginning of human settlement in the region through the late nineteenth century.

Its thorough, chronological narrative equally emphasizes social, cultural, and political history. Students will be especially drawn to descriptions of everyday life for both elite and nonelite members of society during various historical periods.

A Concise History of Korea emphasizes how Korean history can be understood as part of an interactive sphere that includes three basic areas: China, Japan, and the Manchurian/Central Asian region."--Jacket.  Read more...
