CHOICE Review

This guide assembled by historian Matray (California State Univ., Chico) describes "how a pattern of recurring crises has dictated events" and has led to "Korea's tragic modern history." The author presents ten topical chapters, from "The Hermit Kingdom" covering the region's geography and cultural-ethnic background of its population, to chapters dealing with the Korean War and the "Cold War Remnant" on the aftermath of that conflict. The work includes a chronology of events from 1866 to early 2016, and 29 biographies of the major politicians, foreign policy makers, and military leaders (from Dean Acheson to Zhou Enlai). Topics chronicle events leading up to the division of North from South Korea, and the numerous cited works are mostly secondary sources, including the author's own publications. The 25 primary documents included are valuable, but these materials would have further enhanced the readers' understanding if they had they been cross-referenced in the chapters and not simply appended chronologically. The brief description in the preface of the varied biodiversity of the DMZ and--by its creation--the appearance of an "accidental" nature sanctuary is particularly worthwhile. Overall, this ready-reference tool will interest general readers of Korean history; perhaps too specialized for some public or school libraries, it will serve academic libraries supporting historical research, particularly military history. Summing Up: Recommended. All readership levels. --Shin Freedman, Framingham State University
