Overview

This book, edited by Samuel Kim, presents the first sustained analysis of Korea's globalization and its ramifications for all aspects of the Korean state and society. Combining a broader conceptual framework with illustrative case studies, the authors critically probe the promise and performance and the myths and realities of Korea's globalization drive. More broadly, they examine how Korea, as a newly industrialized and newly democratizing country, is coping with the twin challenges of democratic consolidation from below and within and globalization from above and without.
