Overview

In this book, leading scholars provide new perspectives on Korea’s changing role in the new world order. What are the implications of the dramatic end of the Cold War for East Asia and the Korean peninsula? Will peace and prosperity return to the region, followed by the reunification of divided Korea? Or will history repeat itself in the form of violent conflict and rivalry as in late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century East Asia? The contributors consider these questions in the context of major powers’ policies toward the Korean peninsula, inter-Korean relations, and revived prospects for Korean reunification.
