A Concise History of Premodern Korea : From Antiquity through the Nineteenth Century Paperback / softback

Part of the A Concise History of Premodern Korea series

Description

Now in a fully revised and updated edition, this engaging text provides a concise history of Korea from the beginning of human settlement in the region through the late nineteenth century.

Michael J. Seth's thorough chronological narrative equally emphasizes social, cultural, and political history.

Students will be especially drawn to descriptions of everyday life for both elite and nonelite members of society during various historical periods.

The book emphasizes how Korean history can be understood as part of an interactive sphere that includes three basic areas: China, Japan, and the Manchurian/Central Asian region.

Throughout, Seth draws comparisons between developments in Korea and those in neighboring regions.

All readers looking for a balanced, knowledgeable history will be richly rewarded with this clear and cogent book.
