      North Korea's Steep Decline: The Passage of Hwang Jang Yop: The Two Koreas in Time of Trouble: Turn Toward Engagement: Into the Heavens, Under the Earth: Toward an Aid-Based State: Perry to the Rescue: Toward the June Summit: Summit in Pyongyang: Engaging the United States: Afterword: Price: $   If you want to read only one book, but get a well-rounded view of the Korean Peninsula, this is the book for you. This book goes into great depth on the modern history of the two Koreas in a more unbiased way than most western books tend to do. It shows the rational thought of presumed crazy and irrational dictators and how neither side is perfect.4/5(30).

      This book focuses on South Korea, and discusses every aspect of the country’s rise from a destitute post-war state to a tech-obsessed powerhouse. What sets this book apart is the inclusion of several interviews with important Korean pioneers, including the mayor of Seoul, actor Choi Min-sik, and Soyeon Yi, Korea’s first astronaut. Though this book is somewhat outdated, particularly concerning North Korean leadership changes, it is still a useful scholarly resource to obtain an understanding of twentieth century Korean history, regardless of which Korea one is interested in. ()/5(3).

      An old Asia hand offers a briefing that's more notable for the breadth than for the depth with which it addresses the issues still dividing North from South Korea. Oberdorfer (The Turn, , etc.) starts his narrative in , the first time that Pyongyang representatives had openly visited Seoul since the peninsular country was partitioned in the wake of WW II, and then reviews the ongoing. In , after years of mutual hostilities, North Korea invaded South Korea in attempt to unify the peninsula under its communist rule. The subsequent Korean War, which lasted from to , ended with a stalemate and has left the two Koreas separated by the Korean Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) up to the present day.
