Announcing New Publication by Professors Sun Joo Kim (Harvard University) and Jungwon Kim (Columbia University)!

"Wrongful Deaths: Selected Inquest Records from Nineteenth-Century Korea"
Compiled and Translated by Sun Joo Kim and Jungwon Kim

Published and distributed by the University of Washington Press. For more information: http://www.washington.edu/uwpress/search/books/KIMLAW.html
This collection presents and analyzes inquest records that tell the stories of ordinary Korean people under the Choson court (1392-1910). Extending the study of this period, usually limited to elites, into the realm of everyday life, each inquest record includes a detailed postmortem examination and features testimony from everyone directly or indirectly related to the incident. The result is an amazingly vivid, colloquial account of the vibrant, multifaceted societal and legal cultures of early modern Korea.
