Man Sei! The Making of a Korean American, Peter Hyun

Memoir of a twelve-year old boy who witnessed the Korean Independence gathering on March 1, 1919, the first of numerous national demonstrations to protest Japan's occupation of Korea, that ended in violence and failure, though it ignited nationalistic passions that persist to this day.
