    schema:description "Beginning with the prehistoric era, A History of Korea provides a uniquely detailed treatment of the earlier periods in Korea's evolution. The work progresses through the era of the Three Kingdoms - Silla, Koguryo and Paekche; the Koryo period (918-1392 AD) and the war with the Qidan, the coming of the Mongols and the invasion of Japan; and the rule of the Yi dynasty from 1392 to 1910, which saw the flowering of Korean Confucianism, the invasion of Hideyoshi, the Manchu invasion, long periods of isolation and then the opening of the country to the West. Following this came the decades form 1910 to 1945 when Korea was under Japanese rule; the period of the Sino-Japanese War, the Russo-Japanese War and the Asian Co-prosperity. Moving towards the present day, the work concludes with the story of the two Koreas and the drawing of the line between them, South Korea's economic successes and the adoption there of a new constitution in 1987."@en ;
