Korea: An Illustrated History by David Rees
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


David Rees presents this rich social, political, cultural, and spiritual history of Korea in short form and vivid detail, with over fifty illustrations and maps. Koreans call their country Choson, which is familiarly translated as "The Land of the Morning Calm". From the time of the legendary Tan-Gun in the third millennium B.C. until the middle of the twentieth century, however, Korea was forced to weather many military and political storms. This volume concisely depicts these political and social events, as well as Korea's profound spiritual and cultural heritage -- a panoramic view that is complemented by more than fifty illustrations and maps.

Author Biography

David Rees has been renowned as an expert on the history and affairs of the Far East for several decades. This well-deserved reputation rests on Korea: The Limited War, still considered the definitive English-language work on the Korean War and numerous other works.
