Sources of Korean Tradition: Volume 2: From the Sixteenth to the Twentieth Centuries
Publisher: Columbia University PressFormat: Paperback
Like the classic “Sources of Chinese Tradition”, “Sources of Japanese Tradition”, and “Sources of Indian Tradition” which serve as its prototype, this collection of seminal primary readings in the social, intellectual, and religious traditions of Korea from the 16th century to the present day aims to help generations of students and lay readers understand how leading intellectuals in Korea have looked at life, the traditions of their ancestors, and the world they lived in. The selections range from the mid- and late Chos n dynasty in the 16th century, through the encounter with the West and imperialist Japan in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, to the political and cultural events in South and North Korea since 1945 - ending with President Kim Taejung s 1998 inaugural address.
