Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This anthology is the most ambitious, comprehensive, and authoritative English-language sourcebook of Korean civilization ever assembled. Encompassing social intellectual, religious, and literary traditions from ancient times through World War II, this collection reveals the grand corpus of thought, beliefs, and customs unique to the Korean people. Volume I features three major periods of Korean history: the Three Kingdoms and Unified Silla (57 B.C.--935), Koryo (918--1392), and Early Choson (1392-1600). Each section begins with a broad historical introduction to provide context and perspective, and contains representative writings from the era, with commentary, background, and analysis.

Book News Annotation:

A comprehensive compilation of the basic materials necessary to study Korean thought, religion, and culture, for students and general readers, based on the five-volume Korean edition published from 1984 to 1986. The complete Sourcebook is arranged chronologically by the five major epochs of Korean history, Volume One featuring the first three periods: the Three Kingdoms and Unified Silla (57 B.C.-935), Koryo (918-1392) and Early Choson (1392-1600). Each section begins with a broad historical introduction and each source extract is accompanied by commentary, background, and analysis. A huge achievement, bringing the heart of this culture within the ken of a broad English-speaking audience.
