Some on these lists may already have received this.
I wanted to be sure that everyone does.
The Ogle name will be known to many of a certain age,
not least for George's at the time eye-opening book
South Korea: dissent within the economic miracle (1990).
In 2007 he was placed #7 on the Korea Times' list of
foreigners most remembered in South Korea:
I'm surprised they've had to resort to Xlibris.
But maybe this is less of a hassle than dealing
with academic publishers.

_Our Lives in Korea and Korea in Our Lives_
By George Ogle and Dorothy Ogle
Because he prayed in public for eight men who were tortured, forced to
make false confessions and were sentenced to death by South Korea’s military
dictatorship, in 1974 George Ogle was deported from the country where he had
worked as a missionary for 20 years.
Two months later when Dorothy and the four Ogle children left Korea,
friends and colleagues commissioned them to “Go tell our story.” After the
South Korean people ended the military dictatorship in 1987, the story changed
from the struggle for democracy and human rights to a story of the Korean
movement for peace and reunification of their divided nation.
Compelling and comprehensive, Our Lives in Korea and Korea in Our Lives is
not only the Ogles’ personal memoirs of living in South Korea from
1954-1974 and later visiting both the North and South, it is an effort to tell the
story of the Korean people as the authors experienced it directly, and as
it has come to them by closely following the evolving history through
almost 60 years.
The book highlights the hope and promise of President Kim DaeJung’s “
Sunshine Policy” of constructive engagement with North Korea and is written to
give readers around the world a vision for ending the Korean War to bring
peace, prosperity and reconciliation to all of the Korean people.
