This well-edited collection of essays makes an important contribution to our understanding of the history of the two Koreas in the past seventy years. Each essay examines some aspect of Korea’s global engagement and the degree to which Koreans were passive or active agents in shaping their own development. The essays are accessibly written and broad enough in their implications to be of interest to non-specialists while providing new findings and insights that will require specialists to rethink some of their assumptions about recent Korean history.

This book indeed explores “new frontiers” with a collection of excellent chapters written by some of the rising young scholars in Korean Studies. The book examines an intriguing set of topics that break new ground and utilize new archival materials while addressing issues that do not receive the attention they deserve. These chapters should be required reading for the fascinating stories they tell of how both Koreas faced difficult challenges in dealing with a changing global environment and worked to determine their own fate.
