Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Modeled after the classic Sources of Chinese Tradition, Sources of Japanese Tradition, and Sources of Indian Tradition, this collection of seminal primary readings in the social, intellectual, and religious traditions of Korea from the sixteenth century to the present day lays the groundwork for understanding Korean civilization and demonstrates how leading intellectuals and public figures in Korea have looked at life, the traditions of their ancestors, and the world they lived in.

The selections range from the mid- and late Chosn dynasty in the sixteenth century, through the encounter with the West and imperialist Japan in the late ninteenth and early twentieth centuries, to the political and cultural events in South and North Korea since 1945 — ending with President Kim Taejung's 1998 inaugural address.

Book News Annotation:

A selective abridgement of the (1996), intended to be read alongside general historical accounts and to give readers a sense of how participants and observers viewed major historical and cultural developments . The focus of the series overall is more on the social and civic than on the broadly humanistic and literary. The volume comprises the text of letters, speeches, manifestos, essays, proclamations, and other documents that comment on politics, education, reform proposals, society and culture, philosophy, encounters with the West, and specific historic events, concluding with the 1998 inaugural address of South Korean President Kim Dae Jung.
