George Ogle may be best remembered for his crusading on behalf of the Urban Industrial Mission, which also seems to have receded into history, for underpaid, overworked textile workers, mostly women.(I interviewed him back then.) Lee Jae-eui was co-editor, with Henry Scott-Stokes, of Kwangju Uprising, which should be available.

Indeed. It's a pity that books like Ogle's South Korea: Dissent within the Economic Miracle (1990), Lee Jae-eui's Kwangju Diary: Beyond Death, Beyond the Darkness of the Age, Helen Snow's Song of Arirang, and some great translations of Korean literatures are all out of print. They happen to be some of the best textbooks and students love them. But even libraries cannot buy them, let alone students, because they are over-priced and inaccessible.

The Ogle name will be known to many of a certain 
not least for George's 
at the time eye-opening book 
South Korea: dissent within the economic miracle 
In 2007 he was placed #7 on the Korea Times' 
list of
foreigners most remembered in South 

I'm surprised they've had to resort to Xlibris.
But maybe this is less of a hassle than dealing
with academic publishers.

  Lives in Korea and Korea in Our Lives 
  George Ogle and Dorothy Ogle
  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. 
  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. 
  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. 
  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.
