Dear all,

As long-time list members will have noticed, 
Korean Studies Review has been primarily 
conspicuous by its absence over the last year. A 
host of other commitments have kept me away from 
editorial duties, and the situation is likely to 
continue for the foreseeable future. I have 
decided, therefore, that rather than leave KSR in 
this semi-moribund state, it's time, after a 
decade, to hand on the editorial reins. I'm 
pleased to announce that KSR will be in capable 
hands, as Robert Fouser of Seoul National 
University (fouser at snu.ac.kr) will take over as 
editor. He'll be working with reviewers from now 
on, sending out reviews and overseeing the KSR 
website. Eventually KSR will migrate to a new 
server, but for the time being reviews from 
1998-2007 will continue to be available at 
http://koreaweb.ws/ks/ksr/ ; reviews from 2008 on 
will be available at the new KSR website 

Below is the list of books that are currently 
available. Those who are interested in a book 
should write to me directly at 
<stephen.epstein at vuw.ac.nz>.  I will continue to 
arrange receipt for now and Bob will handle 
sending out books from the next notice of books 
available. For more info about KSR and to access 
past reviews, see http://koreaweb.ws/ks/ksr.

Finally, let me say that working on KSR over the 
years has been a great pleasure, largely for the 
opportunity to get to know so many of you 
electronically, and then often, in person.

Best wishes to everyone, and thank you for your support over the years.
