The Story of Korea as it was never told before!
In Korea, Won-bok Rhie tells the story of the Korean people as it has never been told before. Rhie's personal insights provide a delightful and humorous portrait of the Korean people. It is comical yet serious, well-informed but objective. If you have time for juyt one book on Korea, this is the one!
A book that was published to wide acclaim in Korea in 2002, Korea presents a hilarious and often unflattering look at Korean society and its people. Through skillfully chosen subjects -- e.g., spicy food, education fever, conglomerates, the tension between North and South Korea -- Won-bok Rhie explores the unique manifestations of Korean attitudes that are often misunderstood by foreigners. It is a fascinating exploration of the Korean mindset that weaves together history, sociology and cultural anthropology. The insightful discussions of Korea's place between China and Japan, its more well-known neighbours, also clear the fog away as to who the people of Korea are.
- Neighbours but Strangers: Korea, China and Japan
