Synopsis

Kim Ku was highly involved in the struggle for Korea's independence from Japan, and now the autobiography of this celebrated national figure, before only available in Korean, Chinese, or Japanese, has been translated into English. Kim's writings detail the rise of Korea, from inception to the modern 'Two Koreas.' In addition, a major statement of political philosophy by Kim has been translated, and Jongsoo Lee has added an insightful introduction, a table comparing the dates of world events to dates in Kim's life, and a compilation of biographical sketches on the figures that appear in the autobiography. This book, complete with photographs and maps, is a must-read for anyone studying Asian history and culture.
