Abstract:

"Seven of the most highly regarded Korean specialists examine the evolution of state-society relations in Korea since the end of World War II. They portray Korea's remarkable transition to a modern industrial society as a process far more complex and conflict-ridden than previous writers have suggested."--BOOK JACKET. "State and Society in Contemporary Korea moves beyond narrow economic concerns to explore spheres of civil society which have been neglected in literature on economic development. Each chapter highlights a distinct pattern of Korean modernization, and the book covers such topics as emerging classes, historical sources of political cleavages, institutional bases of development policies the rise of the minjung movement, the hegemony problem of the new bourgeoisie and conflicts over cultural construction. A chapter on the "hermit kingdom" of North Korea rounds out the book's coverage of society and politics on the Korean perimeter."--BOOK JACKET. "By placing the study of Korean state and society in a broader, richer historical and cultural context, this book promotes a more solid understanding of the deeper aspects of Korea's industrial transformation."--BOOK JACKET.
