Introduction to Korean History & Culture, by Andrew C. Nahm

What makes this history book different from the others is Nahm’s exploration of cultural change in light of historical change, including in the arts and traditions. Some details that seem essential are missing, such as full names, the growing and changing use of media, and popular cultural attitudes.
