Members of this list might like to know that the Royal Asiatic Society Korea Branch has just published a new volume of its Transactions, This is Volume 88 since the first volume appeared in 1900. Our journal cannot rival more 'officially recognized' academic journals in the field but we try to publish serious articles about Korea past and present. The Contents of this volume are:

Recently Published Books about Korean Studies

Transactions is sent automatically to RAS members. Others (including libraries) can order it from the RAS at   royalasiatickorea at gmail.com for $15 plus postage.

The last item, a new feature for Transactions, attempts to list recent books published in English related to Korean Studies, especially those related to Korean history and culture. We would like to expand this list and keep it up to date. It can be seen at http://hompi.sogang.ac.kr/anthony/RecentKoreanStudiesBooks.html and I would be grateful to learn of other titles that should be included, please email  me.
