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.
