Divided Dynamism presents a cogent but comprehensive review of the unification policy goals of two divided East Asian states, Korea and China. Utilizing the classic case study of German unity and its ongoing implications and costs, the book explores the diplomatic relations of South and North Korea, and the People's Republic of China/Republic of China on Taiwan.

Viewing the historical settings, the current context, the political justifications, and the future durability of the divide in each of the different cases, this book explores the unique roads to national unity. It equally provides a framework of necessary and often difficult to find background data on the countries considered. Moreover, this volume presents various scenarios that may lead to either Korean or Chinese unity.

Divided Dynamism relates an interdisciplinary case study particularly geared toward university comparative government and international relations courses as well as policy makers.
John J. Metzler is Professor [Lecturer] of Government and Asian Studies at St. John's University in New York.

Metzler's core message- perhaps as much an expression of hope as of analysis- is his wish that 'the three nations, united in peace and freedom, will rejoin history in the new century.'>
