Announcing the newest publication by Professor Paul Chang:
“Protest Dialectics: State Repression and South Korea’s Democracy Movement, 1970-1979”
Published by Stanford University Press:


1970s South Korea is characterized by many as the "dark age for democracy." Most scholarship on South Korea's democracy movement has focused on the "student revolution" in 1960 and the large protest cycles in the 1980s which were followed by Korea's transition to democracy in 1987. But in his groundbreaking work of political and social history of the “Yusin” period, Paul Chang highlights the importance of understanding the emergence and evolution of the democracy movement in this oft-ignored decade.  Protest Dialectics journeys back to 1970s South Korea and provides readers with an in-depth analysis of the numerous events in the 1970s that laid the groundwork for South Korea’s democratization.
