Although the two representations of Paekche history differ markedly the underlying problem faced by both the twelfth century and the twenty first century historian is essentially the same, fashioning a responsibel and reasonably coherent history of the kingdom, from the meagre, fragmentary evidence.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Best's book is a watershed in the study of Paekche outside of Korea and perhaps will give further impetus to the growth of studies on traditional Korea in the West... Whether this is on the horizon or not, Best's work will stand alone as both a scrupulously written history of a little understood kingdom, and a scholarly and informed partial translation of one of the most important works in the study of Korea.--Daniel Corey Kane"Korean Quarterly" (12/01/2007)
Rarely has the East Asian scholarly world seen the publication of a work on its early history as important as Jonathan Best's History of the Early Korean Kingdom of Paekche. This history promises to be a definitive text of early Korean history and an important piece of the puzzle for scholars who are seeking to understand East Asia at the start of the first millennium.--Edward J. Schultz "Journal of Asiatic Studies "
