Sinopsis:

Book by Katsiaficas George

Críticas:

"A majestic account of political uprisings and social movements in Asia--an important contribution to the literature on both Asian studies and social change that is highly-recommended reading for anyone concerned with these fields of interest. The work is well-researched, clearly-argued, and beautifully written, accessible to both academic and general readers." " --"Carl Boggs, author, "The Crimes of Empire"

"Finally, for the first time in English, we now have a comprehensive overview of the remarkable waves of popular uprisings that have taken place in South Korea in the 20th century. With this volume, Katsiaficas challenges the eurocentrism of social movement scholarship and provides a radical reappraisal of the role of mass popular uprisings in contemporary history." "--"Eddie Yuen, coeditor, "Confronting Capitalism"

"This book makes a unique contribution to Korean Studies because of its social movements' prism. It will resonate well in Korea and will also serve as a good introduction to Korea for outsiders. By providing details on 20th century uprisings, Katsiaficas provides insights into the trajectory of social movements in the future. His world-wide field work experiences and surprising impacts in Korea are described well in this book."" --"Na Kahn-chae, Director, May 18 Institute

"The first volume of George Katsiaficas' "Asia's Unknown Uprisings" is a comprehensive analysis of both the major and minor social movements that have shaped South Korea's long twentieth century." --John Eperjesi, "Korea Journal"

"Thirteen chapters explore major Korean uprisings from the 1894 Rice War to the 2008 Candlelight Protest, Jeju and Yeosun Insurrections, and the overthrow, assassination, and incarceration of Korean presidents. Recommended . . . it fills a void in English-language studies on Korea." "CHOICE""

"George Katsiaficas, the prolific student of mass movements, offers an ambitious and well documented study of modern South Korean social movements." Michael Munk, "Socialism and Democracy""

"Aided by insider accounts, [the book] offers a rich narrative of the unfolding events with rare insight into the inner dynamics and the emotional responses that characterize rare moments of insurgency." Sun-Chul Kim, "The Journal of Asian Studies""
