New book announcement:


Hildi Kang. "Tombstones without a Tomb: Korea's Queen Sindeok 1355 into the
21st Century."  (Publisher: Seoul Selection, Seoul, Korea. ISBN
978-1-62412-102-0=9)  This presents the little-known story of a queen, whose
honor and multiple dishonors were mired in the turbulent and prolonged
controversies between scholars and throne across the flow of Korea's Joseon
dynasty and whose ornately carved tombstones now lie embedded in the wall of
the major parkway that cuts thought the center of Seoul. Why these stones
are now in public view rather than guarding their assigned tomb adds another
dimension to the mystery and gives the book its title.
