The book Robert Hassink recommends is indeed the most up-to-date 
geography of Korea in the English language. My students use it a lot in 
a course on the Geography of Korea they take in preparation for a field 
trip.  But I think that it is too specialized and, with its 524 pages, 
too detailed for an undergraduate course "Introduction to the 
traditional and modern history of Korea". 10 years ago a set of teaching 
materials was published for use in British high schools, but it is also 
useful for undergraduate classes. (I hate to propagate my own writings, 
but I was asked to write a short geographical introduction for it.) The 
bibliographical data: Keith Howard with Susan Pares & Tessa English: 
Korea. People, Country and Culture. London (SOAS) 1996.
