Overview

Korea and Regional Geopolitics consists of twelve original essays written by Korea experts in the fields of political science, economics, military science, history, geography, education, international laws, and literature, using new interdisciplinary research methods and recently released documents that have not previously been employed in any English publications. The contributors' views reveal an inside perspective into one of the most important regions in the modern world by discussing national unification, democratization, international trade, U.S.-South Korea relations and the Cold War and its impact. The contributing professors, lawyers, and professionals came from Northeast Asia or worked there for many years and can provide cross-cultural backgrounds and move beyond existing scholarship to start new debates. New sources, including declassified Russian Communist archives and Chinese Communist resources, and interviews with government officials provide new ideas in an unprecedented manner that will stimulate a large, enthusiastic audience in America by their interesting findings.
