South Korea
by Dirk Renckhoff
Publisher's Description
"The main subject of this photographic documentation is the cultural change in a country which, like hardly any other, throughout its long history, has been to the same extent, a bridge, a mediator, a bone of contention, between its neighbors China and Japan at first, and finally between the two great blocks of international politics. The tenacity with which Korea has held on to its cultural and ethnic identity over thousands of years despite such a difficult geopolitical position is to be regarded as one of the most remarkable phenomena in world history."--from the Introduction.
