Short Synopsis
Korea: A Very Short Introduction explores the history, culture, and society of a deeply divided region.

Full Synopsis
Having spent centuries in the shadows of its neighbors China and Japan, Korea is now the object of considerable interest for radically different reasons—the South as an economic success story and for its vibrant popular culture; the North as the home to one of the world's most repressive regimes, at once both bizarre and menacing.

Korea: A Very Short Introduction explores the history, culture, and society of a deeply divided region. Michael Seth considers what it means to be Korean, and analyzes how the various peoples of the Korean peninsula became one of the world's most homogeneous nations, before exploring how this nation evolved, in a single lifetime, into today's sharply contrasting societies. He also discusses how Korea fits into the larger narrative of both East Asian and world history, economically, politically, and socially.
