"Kimchi and IT: Tradition and Transformation in Korea"

By Choong Soon Kim
(Published by Ilchokak)

"Kimchi and IT is an obvious choice for inclusion in our undergraduate syllabi (although one could certainly use it in graduate courses and even business training seminars). It is a powerful anodyne for persistent misrepresentations and misunderstandings of Korean culture and social life." —Samuel Gerald Collins, Korea Journal

Ideal for: Senior high school and college history, cultural studies, Korean studies, and anthroplogy courses.

"Kimchi and IT" offers a comprehensive introduction to Korea old and new by
presenting an overview of racial and cultural origins of Koreans, Korea's history under foreign invasion and colonization, and Korean political transformation toward democracy. The author, a native anthropologist, provides a unique dual perspective from his research in both America and Korea.

(Published by the Royal Asiatic Society, Korea Branch)
