Dear list members,
We are delighted to announce the publication of the Summer 2014 issue (vol.
54, no. 2) of the *Korea Journal.*
Various interesting topics, spanning Korean history from before the Three
Kingdoms period to the present day, are thoroughly and insightfully
investigated in this season’s issue of the *Korea Journal*. The autumn 2014
issue (vol. 54, no. 3) is perhaps notable for its focus on late 19th and
early 20th century Korea, the colonial period, which is explored from no
less than three unique perspectives – the British public, colonial-era
lawmakers, and Korean expats living in California. Other diverse topics
covered include causes of the low birth rate in South Korea, global
citizenship from the South Korean perspective, and the unique history of
the Andong Protectorate after the fall of Goguryeo. This issue contains six
peer-reviewed articles and two book reviews.

of Korea held by the British people in the late 19th century, and the

Korean immigrants in California through rice farming from 1905 to 1920.
Facing discriminatory laws and attitudes in America, Korean expats’ best
recourse was rice farming, and the methods that they took to succeed at it
were unique among Californian farmers.
In the fourth article, Hongsik Yoon investigates potential causes of the
low fertility rate in South Korea. Through analysis of data from a 2009
nationwide survey, the impact of various factors on women’s decisions to
have children is explored.
The fifth article, written by Jong-bok Kim, is about the unique position of
the Andong Protectorate as a buffer zone between Silla, Balhae, and Tang in
the 8th to 10th centuries, maintaining peace between the warring powers of
the Korean peninsula and northeast region of China.
Lastly, Young-ho Lee examines the land reforms conducted by the Korean
government in the late 19th century and the colonial land legislation
established by the Japanese government at least partly on the basis of
This issue of the *Korea Journal* includes a book review by Namhee Lee of

Korea*, an account of the history of history writing and the development of
Korean nationalism in modern Korea. Also included is a book review by Mark
E. Caprio of Yumi Moon’s *The Massacres at Mt. Halla: Sixty Years of Truth*,
